NEW RELEASE DVD RECOMMENDATION - BIG EYES (2014)
I really enjoyed this one. Amy Adams (Margaret Keane) and Christopher Waltz (Walter Keane) are both excellent. It's a fascinating piece of history and reflects the status of women in the '50s. There's great tension as the events unfold and Margaret desperately tries to reclaim he identity as a painter. Most of Tim Burton's movies are dark animations - so this is a welcome turn of direction on his part. Not only is the story engaging, it's a provocative piece of social commentary. Definitely worth seeing!
