Big Fish

I rented Big Fish tonight (I haven’t gone to bed yet, so despite it being quarter past four in the morning, it’s still Saturday – my rules, I make ’em up) and really enjoyed it. It’s essentially a collection of tall tales that a father has told his son over the years. Beautifully filmed and well acted, it’s a real winner. Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney and Jessica Lange (who, at 54, is as beautiful a woman as I’ve ever seen) all give standout performances. It starts off a bit slow, and has a tendency to drag in places, but it’s such a charming movie that I’d call it a winner. Despite “Mars Attacks!” and “Batman Returns” I’m a huge Tim Burton fan, and this movie helped remind me why.
