Expressionistic epic..., 26 May 2002
Author: poe426 from USA

VINCENT is the dark tale of a young man whose innermost desires drive him to the brink of madness. His is a lonely, tormented existence. The Expressionistic environment through which he moves is the lightless landscape of the mentally ill. His obsession is overwhelming: he would gladly forego the dubious pleasures of a "normal" life in favor of a life led deep in the depths of the shadows. And, as he sinks deeper and deeper into his morose mindset, one thing becomes painfully clear: this young man is on the fast track to a rubber room. One can almost HEAR the tortured cry of a soul in despair as he moves listlessly from place to place, his head hung low. The weight of the world virtually rests on his sagging shoulders. But it's the EYES that reflect the innermost pain; the EYES that mirror the shattered soul within the humbled husk as it trudges along. A simple walk up the stairs becomes the scaling of an emotional Everest. Perhaps only the late Charles Addams could relate to this lost soul (for there was, in the eyes of Addams's characters, reflected the same soul-searing pain we find in the eyes of the boy called "Vincent")... A brilliant, moving portrait of a young man in search of his soul.
