Kaushani Banerjee's Film Reviews
Keeping in sync with the name, Big Eyes is a visually dependent film, not only for the paintings, but for the period of the 50’s and 60’s. From the cotton candy coloured world of the free-spirited era to the clothing (especially the women), the entire feel of the era just rivets you into the film.
‘Ugly’ takes steep turns that will leave you confused as to who to root for in the end. The ending is a haunting final shot, which pummels the moral centre of the movie. The film begins and ends with intentional violence which simply accentuates the ugliness instead of serving as a shock-value.
