I sat down watching Big Fish expecting it to be regular Burton at his decent. However, Burton has completely altered his usual formula and has now concentrated not only on his preserved flair, but the plotline (Which all can appreciate and snuggle up to here). Steve Buscemi is astounding, quite hypnotic and he deserves a lot of recognition. Burton, instead of producing another remake, decided to make this and what a relief he actually did. Proves he's more than just a hollywood director.

Something of a Tim Burton's Forrest Gump, this film has a few issues (such as an at times disjointed narrative structure) that are pretty much instantly rectified by a superb cast, fantastic visuals and quite strong direction from Burton. A truly great story. One of Burton's best, and easily his most heartwarming. If only he'd snap out of his now decade-long remake-producing coma more often.

Burton is a director famous for his visual style, but his storytelling abilities have always been a bit...off. Classics like Edward Scissorhands and Batman are memorable not for the stories they told so much as the flair with which they told them. Big Fish certainly benefits from that flair, but it uses it to tell a real heartfelt story -- style and substance are in equal measure here. The acting is all solid, but Buscemi steals the show. If this isn't Burton's best, it's certainly among them.

By splitting the movie between the real and the fictional worlds, Tim Burton finds a way to keep the sentiment feeling true and still preserve his own style. The movie works as a defense of his own outlandish storytelling in addition to being a (just-short-of-too) emotional look at a father-son relationship.

One of the few movies I almost cried in. I'm not usually a Tim Burton fan, but this is a great movie. The storytelling really does take you to another place, and it's really masterful.
