Synopsis: A son tries to determine what was fact and what was fiction in the stories his father told.
Same old story about a son who thinks his father is an idiot and doesn't want anything to do with him until the old man is almost dead. Been there, seen that. However, this time the story is told the way only Tim Burton could tell it, larger than life and visually fascinating. Good cast, too. Worth watching.
Excellent editing, brilliant effects, and a bit of a tear-jerker. It's a basic story but the visual exaggerations make it good. Worth seeing.Added 27 December 2004 at 9:17 PM
