Rating: 3/5 -- DoP Bruno Delbonell buffs Burton's kitsch pop visuals to a soft sheen, but, like the script, they never dig deep enough into the emotional heart of this fascinating real-life story. Full Review
One Room With A View
Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz both shine in a distinctive work...
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The bizarre dysfunction afoot in the Keanes' marriage brings the best out of Burton as a filmmaker, who knows he is working with sensational material here. Full Review
Herald Sun (Australia)
The story itself is fascinating...and Amy Adams' quiet meticulous performance as Margaret Keane is a beautiful and emotional piece of work.
It is a rare misstep for Burton who seems unsure what tone to adopt throughout. Certain visual and inventive flourishes of his are evident...et, he treats the vital moments in the story in a humdrum manner. Full Review
Times of Malta
A melodrama with a comic touch, Big Eyes, is not meant to be a masterpiece, rather, an entertaining piece of art. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- See it for a fascinating true story and a fantastic Amy Adams...
The true story of painter Margaret Keane's life in obscurity while her husband gleaned the notoriety for being the face of her work is brought to the screen by Tim Burton and his ED WOOD screenwriters, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. The story opens in the late 1950s, when Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) packs up the car with her daughter and their personal belongings, and leaves her husband to start a new life in San Francisco. There, Margaret quickly reconnects with her old friend DeeAnn (Krysten Ritter), and falls head over heels for Walter (Christoph Waltz), an artist and part-time real-estate broker who soon shows great interest in her unique paintings of small children with strikingly expressive, saucer-like eyes. Before long, the two are married, and Walter is claiming credit for Margaret's increasingly popular paintings. With the money rolling in, Margaret initially agrees to go along with the ruse, but the closer she gets to her new husband the more she begins to realize that he's little more than a smooth-talking scam artist. Later, riddled with guild over the fact that she's been deceiving her own daughter as her paintings become a pop-culture phenomenon, Margaret leaves the increasingly abusive Walter, and moves to Hawaii. Only then does Margaret gain the confidence to reclaim the works that have been credited to her husband, even when doing so entails going before the judge and proving that she and she alone created the enchanting children with the big eyes. Danny Huston, Terence Stamp, and Jason Schwartzman co-star.
