Water! Paints! Water mixed with paint! You name it! This movie is a love/hate kind of movie, which probably makes you ask why I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Personally, I really liked this movie. I felt like the beginning was a little slow, but it definitely will catch the viewer up to speed...it will, trust me. In the beginning, you won't know who to trust, or who even to like, but wait! The tables will turn and leave you spinning and not knowing who is the real artist, until..wait I don't want to give any spoilers. This is totally a movie for someone who has nothing going on and feels like popping in some microwave popcorn and having a glass of Sunny D, or you're just bored out of your mind and want to watch a movie. Check it out and see for yourself.
"From the Academy Award winning team that brought you Ed Woods, Big Eyes focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz). Walter Keane became a worldwide celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950s after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, and used his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations across the country. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret, his shy wife. She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage and led to a divorce and a dramatic courtroom battle to prove authorship of the paintings."
