Big Eyes: Wink Wink

Amy Adams as Margaret Keane

Full Disclosure: The Movie Slut owned a Keane "Big Eyes" painting when she was in college.

She loved it for it's pure kitchyness.

And so when this movie came to a nearby theater, she rushed there on opening night. And it was an eye opener.

Big Eyes is very much a feminist flick. In case you need a reminder about where a woman's place was in the 1960s, this is the movie for you.

If you're wondering how these cheesy paintings became the phenomenon they were, well, you'll just  have to chalk it up to bad taste. The MS is guilty as charged.
