  • Burton has trouble sustaining the briskness of the first half. But the brilliance of many individual scenes, and the extraordinary performance by Landau, are more than enough to justify this goofy, tender ode to eccentricity. [7 October 1994, Daily Notebook, p.C1] show more

  • Half-factual, half-fanciful and all funny, this labor of love is also unexpectedly touching. [28 September 1994, Life, p.5D] show more

  • One of those rare films that communicates the exquisite joy of the moviemaking process. [7 October 1994, Friday, p.B] show more
