BIG EYES is technically and aesthetically attractive. Clearly in love with the groovy color palettes and streamlined contours of the era...
3 stars out of 5 -- See it for a fascinating true story and a fantastic Amy Adams...
Adams is as watchable as ever as Margaret, backed by fine support...
[A] richly entertaining screenplay brimming with sharp dialogue and memorable characters....Director Tim Burton takes a kitschy slice of 20th century pop culture and turns it into a special film.
BIG EYES is a fabulous match of artist -- Burton -- and material. While it's one of the director's more low-key works, his trademark sly wit infuses the mesmerizing stranger-than-fiction biopic.
[Amy] Adams' performance is refreshing and light, taking us on a powerful emotional journey performed with nuanced skill and heart. Full Review
Behind The Lens
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
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.
