Walter Keene takes credit for Margeret Keene’s art in Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes”

Big Eyes is Tim Burton’s first biopic since 1994’s Ed Wood. He has given us a new masterpiece that is witty, thought-provoking, and tense providing two phenomenal performance by two great actors. Not to mention the essence of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) is a successful painter known for her portraits of big-eyed children. However, she doesn’t get recognition from people in San Francisco. That is because her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) takes credit for her work, selling them in restaurants and stores, and becoming a national celebrity. While Margaret is afraid to publicly protest, their marriages begins to crumble, and soon end up in court in one of 2014’s best.

    • Thanks, Daniel. I think you’ll love it.

      I’m not the biggest fan of Tim Burton, but I think he is a good filmmaker. My personal favorites are Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish. After those movies, he hasn’t had a great directing career. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had its moments, but it was mostly a mess. Johnny Depp annoyed the hell out of me with his portrayal of Willy Wonka. Alice and Wonderland and Dark Shadows were both okay. However, Frankenweenie was where he redeemed himself. I’m looking forward to see what else he has in store.

  1. “Frankenweenie” was indeed spectacular. I always loved “Corpse Bride”. and “Sleepy Hollow” because of the abundance of Gothic (and stylish) atmosphere.
