Frames of Preference: Big Fish

Big FishIn this 2003 movie, a man tries to uncover his father’s life as his father lays dying. This does not prove an easy task, as his father was a man who spun stories to suit his needs, a man who was larger than life itself. The movie explores the span of life, and more particularly, life told through stories, both the ones that people tell, and the ones that are told about them.  This story itself is also bigger than life, an emotional tapestry which mixes the joys of life with the sorrow of parting. This particular shot demonstrates the fantastical characters involved within the life of the storyteller.
