Big Eyes (2014) review
Big Eyes is Tim Burton’s most intimate and refined movie since Ed Wooden (1994), to which it feels a companion piece. (It shares the identical writers, Scott Alexander and Larry Karazewski.) Burton is utilizing his personal extraordinary craftsmanship and artistry to inform a narrative of characters whose work others dismiss as trash. On this case, his topic isn’t a B-movie director however an artist known as “Keane,” who painted ghoulish and naive footage of girls and youngsters with very big eyes.
Not like the supercilious New York Occasions critic John Canaday (Terence Stamp) who dismisses Keane’s portray out of hand because the quintessence of kitsch, Burton is enchanted by it. He opens the movie with a double-edged quote by Andy Warhol. “If it have been so dangerous, so many individuals wouldn’t prefer it.”
On the coronary heart of Huge Eyes is a big fraud. The skin world believed that Keane’s work was achieved by Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) when, in truth, his spouse Margaret (Amy Adams) was accountable for every thing.
The explanations for the fraud are complicated. In usually quirky and delicate type, Burton is probing away at such issues as cultural snobbery, sexism, the predicament of married ladies in late 1950s America, and creative jealousy.
Big Eyes is gorgeously shot in widescreen color. The San Francisco-set scenes, with the Golden Gate Bridge and the steep, dizzying streets to the fore, can’t assist however rekindle reminiscences of Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo. Margaret as portrayed by Amy Adams is extra Doris Day than Kim Novak. She is pert, demure, and with blonde hair. It is a way more passive character from her hardboiled con artist in American Hustle however she performs the half superbly.
Margaret may be very acutely aware that, as a middle-class divorcee with a baby, she has little standing within the patriarchal society during which she lives. Arriving within the huge metropolis, she is naive and bewildered – and doesn’t even know what espresso is. On the identical time, she has a steely dedication that allows her to strike off on her personal within the first place and to dedicate herself to portray her very unusual footage.
