Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Big Fish

Alongside his other great triumphs, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood & Sweeney Todd, Big Fish finds Burton pushing for something more personal than his usual ironic reinvention. Finding a context for imaginative imagery through the story of a son connecting with his father's legacy of tall tales, Burton's film employs carnivalesque magical realism & southern gothic folklore to create a picaresque fable rife with emotion.
