Big Eyes: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Margaret Hawkins (Amy Adams) decided to leave her husband with his daughter to live a new in San Francisco and hopes to find herself to become a true artist. She landed a job at a furniture design store where she paints over the weekdays and tries to sell her paintings during weekends at art fairs. One day, while selling his works, she met another artist Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) and was mesmerized with her work. Soon, the two easily get along together and got married. They become a successful team-up with Margaret painting her masterpiece at home while Walter sells it. However, Walter is taking all the credit to her paintings and buries her into the world of lies.  

Honestly, we thought the film would be boring, but we have high hopes with it because Amy Adams is one of the lead cast. We are quite surprised as the film is really interesting right from the very beginning. Amy Adams performance is outstanding in many ways and Christoph Waltz strong manic energy is scary yet, quite amusing. They both did well, and we are entertained with their heated exchanges on the latter part. 

It's quite refreshing to see Director Tim Burton take another path in this film. He usually makes films, mostly with on a green screen with a touch of CGI technology. You can still feel Burton's work in Big Eyes because it still has that sense of creativeness that he always brings to his picture.

Overall, Big Eyes is a compelling true story of Margaret and Walter Keane. It is fascinating, thanks to Tim Burton's touches and amazing portrayals from its lead cast. This film is more than an art and watching it is truly worth-it.
