EC:WC FCA - Big Fish

This week’s West Coast Film Critic DVD Recommendation is..... “Big Fish”

A Tim Burton film (Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.) filled with the quirky and the fantastical, unfolding his recent vision as no one else can. Steeped with parables, allegories and metaphors, the film carries with it a poignant story about the strained relationship and unique bond between father and son. Deep within the film is a larger message about reconciling with those you love, with the past, and with yourself. The DVD includes several extra vignettes that delve into the making of the film, the development of the characters, and the nature of understanding the improbable.

This critic gives “Big Fish”... 4 wine bottles out of 5. It’s definitely worth a sip.
