Big Eyes Reviews
August 22, 2018
This film could have been made by anybody; Tim Burton didn't bring enough of his style to it... It's a good story, though, and Adams is memorable as a quietly tortured woman.

"Big Eyes" is a film for many age groups---couples, mothers with their daughters, and families with older children will all enjoy this film. It's a story of life and living. You can't miss with this.

Adams is marvelous and with each film she shows how great an artist she has become.

Filmmaker Tim Burton strays slightly from his wheelhouse, but it's a welcomed change of pace.

The film is largely compelling and touches upon many aspects about the dynamics of a couple's love, along with the lengths and limits of tolerance one can have for the other.

What keeps Big Eyes from being anything more than a holiday diversion is that [Burton] and his writers can't get much drama out of the paintings themselves, or the inexplicable fascination they held for so many people.

It becomes bizarrely laughable at times, sadly to the detriment of Margaret's ten-year ordeal.

The 106-minute drama is always watchable, and works no less and no more than a two-dimensional portrait that catches the eye and suggests deeper meaning than is actually present.

Burton's uninspired made-for-cable vibe and Christoph Waltz's overly manic performance always feel at odds with each other.

Burton had a chance to make a powerful statement on the struggle for a woman to achieve artistic recognition and instead settled for another childlike fairy tale.

Big Eyes is Tim Burton's second foray into strange but true stories of American termite art culture... a story about the pain behind the faade of happiness and success.
April 9, 2016
A lovingly crafted, uncommonly astute look at gender roles in American families.
April 6, 2016
A bitter feminist fairy tale about a woman betrayed by love and trust and crafted by culture to be vulnerable to the charms of a con-artist husband.

Bright yet disturbing, Big Eyes is both an indicator of just how far women have come in the past 60 years and a comment on the commercialisation of pop culture.
February 25, 2016
With a kind of quiet reserve, Big Eyes is a rare effort from the Tim Burton that plays it straight.

See this. Show it to your daughters. Just do not expect a whimsical Tim Burton ditty.
April 23, 2015
Big Eyes is the most substantial film Tim Burton has made since Ed Wood.
April 16, 2015
That Big Eyes is the best film Burton has directed in almost a decade is no exaggeration.

Burton is telling a fascinating story here, and his confident sense of time and place, allied to Adams's adept performance as the increasingly assertive artist, provide many pleasures.
