Critic Reviews for Big Fish & Begonia
More a visual marvel than a true masterpiece, but hopefully this is just the start of something new.
While the movie's kaleidoscope of striking images and distinctive characters is spellbinding, it lacks psychological depth. And the question of what the hell is going on is never far from your mind.
