BIG EYES: A refreshing change of pace for director Tim Burton who uses color to a big advantage in this biopic. This is the story of Margaret Keane whose paintings of waifs in the early fifties were thought to be by her husband, Walter, giving him much renown that he didn't deserve. Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams play the couple and both give outstanding performances with Waltz doing a demented tour de force that will grow on you as the film progresses.  Terrance Stamp plays a dour art critic to perfection and there is not a false note in the entire movie.  If you remember those big eyed children that were all the rage in one point in our lives, you will find this film absolutely fascinating.  Kudos to all involved.
