Big Eyes: Tim Burton’s Big Eyes Gallery
Criticism of First : For her best film in a long time, Burton reconnects with California and with the writers of “Ed Wood” to evoke the story of Margaret Keane, a painter who pioneered a popular art form opposed to elitist painting. Living in San Francisco in 1955 with her daughter, Margaret married a genius juggler who helped her make a fortune by selling her paintings, which he claimed to be responsible for. Thanks to a scenario so fluid that it seems to have written itself alone, the filmmaker illustrates the dramatic, touching and sometimes comical trajectory of a woman both naive and determined, ideally embodied by Amy Adams. In order not to vampirize her, Christoph Waltz oversimplifies his character of margoulin of which we can only guess the potentially fascinating gray areas.
