It's amazing that Burton creates a multi-dimensional environment in 6 minutes. There is also incredible character depth, considering the limited time. And I loved the "never more" line as an ending. 5/5.
'and my soul from out that shadow, that lies floating on the floor, shall be lifted never more..' such brilliant short film about one imaginative little boy. For black and white animated film, it really has colors of its own. Reminds me of my childhood or of anyone's childhood. Very simple, yet captivating&wonderful!
`His voice was soft and very slow,As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow,that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted - Nevermore!`
gothic,dark atmosphere,Edgar Allan Poe poetry elements,and obviously influence,as always,beautifully weird characters.
Mixture of Burtons vast,genius imagination,I think in a way - autobiographical,true masterpiece in only 6 minutes.
It's great that Price was game to do this little film. For me w/ Burton the earlier the film, the more earnest. The eccentricities here could distract you from the fact that it's a keenly felt portrait of childhood alienation and having been a bullied kid with mental health problems I can relate to the self-mythologising in the face of indifference to the fact that you feel terrible and alone. Angsty Edward Gorey!
Meraviglioso. Per godere appieno della macabra magia che l'immaginazione di Tim Burton ha saputo evocare, è assolutamente imperativo vederlo in inglese. In lingua originale la breve storia di Vincent è narrata dalla robusta voce di Vincent Price, che accompagna lo spettatore attraverso i versi di questa triste ed affascinante poesia. Molto bella anche l'animazione di chiaro stampo burtoniano.
