''They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that's true. What they don't tell you is that when it starts again, it moves extra fast to catch up.''

A story about a son trying to learn more about his dying father by reliving stories his father told him about himself.

A great movie

In my opinion, it is probably the last great movie directed by Tim Burton, maybe his best one ever. I mean, he has made some good flicks afterwards but never as inspired and inspiring as this one. The first time I saw it, I thought it was pretty good. But I don't know why, the second time around, I thought it was just amazing and I was just blown away by the whole thing.

Description: Big Fish twines in and out of the oversized stories of Edward Bloom, played as a young man by Ewan McGregor and as a dying father by Albert Finney. Edward's son Will (Billy Crudup) sits by his father's bedside, but has little patience with the old man's fables, because he feels these stories have kept him from knowing who his father really is. Director Burton dives into Bloom's imagination with zest, sending the determined young man into haunted woods, an idealized Southern town, a traveling circus, and much more. The result is sweet but—thanks to the director's dark and clever sensibility—never saccharine. Big Fish will dra ... (more)

"Re-watch - Dec. 5th It's been several years now since I last watched Big Fish, which was a good thing because it had all the power over me that it's always had. It's still easily Burton's last masterpiece, as after this he fell into repetition & self-parody. Which is a shame because he used to work wonders on the big screen, and had he been able to maintain the balance found here over the years we might have seen some amazing things. Fortunately those of us who have lost our enthusiasm for his "
