In the early stages of the movie, Edison mentions sailing across Lake Erie to Vienna, Ontario. He pronounces it "VeeENah" however the the town in Ontario is pronounced locally as "VaiENah", which Edison's family would have pointed out to him. See more »
A lot of people did not like the choices in this film. The style is almost surrealist, art house, than a typical biography film. I was really was engaged by the exploration of the genre. It was intentional choices, not a slip up or a result of bad acting or sloppy direction but it does come down to effectiveness. Did the style and the experiment fit the content or what people wanted from the film? I think it didn't quite fit. However, it was a marvelous attempt and and the acting was phenomenal. There were some genius moments but it's my opinion that the ending was the weakest segment of the film.
