Big Fish (2003)
Comments on the Movie
An excellent, artistically whole, picture.
The person I saw it with said it suffered from spats of brilliance, I disagree. I thought the entire movie was consistent in theme, intellectual intensity, and creativity.
Personally the only criticism I have to make, is that I wanted one more fantastic scenario. The last one before the finale, involved his affair with Bonham Carter. That wasn't nearly as entertaining as the circus scenes, or the World War II action. I wanted one more scene of zaniness.
Maybe they'll have another crazy story in the deleted scenes of the DVD. I'll just have to wait and see. Visually, I'd say this was Burton's best work, better than the Set direction in Edward Scissorhands, which is saying a whole lot.
Alison Lohman is a brilliant, young actress. I guess she's not as young as she looks, but white oleandor, Matchstick Men, and Big Fish. What a resume.
anyways, Burton's back, ladies and gents, stand up and take notice.
