Big Fish
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Tim Burton


In Tim Burton's family film BIG FISH, a gifted storyteller named Edward Bloom (Albert Finney), who lives in a small town in Alabama, recounts tall tales of his wild worldly adventures. These are shown in flashback with Ewan McGregor playing the young Bloom. Wonderful special effects and vibrant colors that pop off the screen make this Burton film a much sunnier experience than his macabre gems EDWARD SCISSORHANDS and BEETLEJUICE. Yet his signature quirky artistry is unmistakable, and the movie benefits from crisp production values and a loveable, bizarre cast of characters.

- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"...BIG FISH turns into a wide-eyed Southern gothic picaresque in which each lunatic twist of a development is more enchanting than the last..."
