#5- Big Fish

#5- Big Fish, directed by Tim Burton

Big Fish is an important movie because it shows the way things in life can be distorted or even untruthful sometimes, but that doesn't really matter. It's truly a movie that focuses on feelings instead of knowledge. Will doesn't really know what's true about his father's life and because of that, and his father's obsession with himself, this creates a divide between father and son. Only when Will is able to let go a little from trying to figure out what's the truth and what's fiction can he accept who his father is and love him again. This is a movie about love and acceptance and realizing you can't change people, but you should love them for who they are.
