...that anything can be the truth depending on the point of view of the person telling it.
Big Fish is Ten Years Old
I was really getting my Tim Burton groove on in my early teens when he came out with this picture, based on the novel of the same name. I remember thinking at first that it wasn't very Burtonish - it was certainly more subdued than a lot of the things he had come out with before and since.
But that really doesn't matter in the end because while it's not high on my personal favorites list, it's certainly a damn good tale and probably one of his technical best.
What's really interesting is that it really examines points of view - as the son tries to find the truth behind his father's tall tales, the exaggerations are often not as extreme as one may think.
The score was one of Danny Elfman's subtlest as well, and earned him one of his too few Oscar nods (I remember he didn't even show up - probably because RotK had everything in the bag that year). It was complimented by a pretty decent "various artists" sampling too.
Really, this boils down to the same thing I usually say at this point - if you haven't seen it yet, rectify the situation immediately.
