NYT Review: An Artist Overlooked in Plain Sight

Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” tells the story of the artist Margaret Keane, whose husband, Walter Keane, took credit for her work in the 1960s. — A. O. Scott Read the review

For all its tonal shifts and erratic pacing, the film is Burton's heartfelt tribute to the yearning that drives even the most marginalized artist to self expression no matter what the hell anyone thinks.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2014-12-30

 

Adams is lovely and tremulous, but Big Eyes would be even better if Waltz was in the same key.

David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2014-12-29

 

The story is just so downright weird that the film can't help but be compelling. Just not as compelling as it could have been.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2014-12-25

 

A wondrously strange true story about art and heartbreak, intellectual property theft, and the subjugation of women.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-12-25

 

The story itself is fascinating ... which helps, and Amy Adams' quiet meticulous performance as Margaret Keane is a beautiful and emotional piece of work.

Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com, 2014-12-25

 

In "Big Eyes," the sincerity of the artist trumps the judgment of the critics, and her vision triumphs over fraudulent promotion. It makes a passionate case for her. Whether it vindicates her art is another question entirely.

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2014-12-24

 

You can't help but sense Tim Burton nodding in agreement when Walter bellows, "Just because people like my work, does that make it bad?"

Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly, 2014-12-24

 

Throughout his career, Burton has always been capable of surprising audiences. "Big Eyes" is no exception.

Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2014-12-24

 

Adams is very good at the difficult art of making passive characters interesting -- a gift that stands her in good stead here.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2014-12-24

 

Nimble, off the beaten track and very entertaining, it's the cinematic equivalent of a lava lamp.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2014-12-24

 

What matters is, does the artist speak through this work? And does this work speak to you? And "Big Eyes" does. I just wish it spoke louder.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2014-12-24

 

Visually inventive, as are all of Burton's movies, "Big Eyes" is pleasant enough to watch; you just wish there were more to it.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-12-24

 

Burton had a chance to make a powerful statement on the struggle for a woman to achieve artistic recognition and instead settled for another childlike fairy tale.

Scott Marks, San Diego Reader, 2016-05-23

 

A feminist psycho-melodrama made without insight or dramatic excitement.

David Denby, New Yorker, 2015-01-12

 

Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz are charismatic in the lead roles; occasionally they distract from the movie's overall smugness.

Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 2015-01-02

 

Burton might need to get further from blockbuster bloat in order to regain his formal mastery of kitsch. Right now his sense of comic portraiture is too easily mistakable for splatter painting.

Wesley Morris, Grantland, 2014-12-29

 

Waltz ham-and-eggs Adams off the screen. In the process, the movie strands her character without an inner life, a psychology, or anything that would indicate what makes her tick.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2014-12-26

 

I watched wide-eyed with dismay while the film turned as lifeless as the paintings.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, 2014-12-25

 

Burton lets his film putter along in middle gear, provoking neither riotous laughter nor emotional immersion.

James Adams, Globe and Mail, 2014-12-24

 

This portrait of a woman on the verge - of success, of suppression, of submission, of rebellion - is never fully realized.

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2014-12-24
