Not all other movies like Big Fish are based upon novels, but Forrest Gump is.
Arguably more widely well-known than Big Fish, this movie captures the astonishing life story of its lead character as played by Tom Hanks. Having been present, mostly by accident, at a staggering number of notable historic events and moments, his story unfolds when he begins chatting to a stranger at a bus stop.
When an injured stuntman and a little girl find themselves side-by-side in a Californian hospital circa 1920, the stuntman finds little else to do than to tell the girl a story of five mythical heroes.
As the story unfolds, the girl’s over-active imagination works in unison with the stuntman’s fragile state of mind in order to bring the tale to life.
Set within the scarcely-covered setting of Falangist Spain in 1944, Pan’s Labyrinth is a movie which possesses both the power to beguile and shock. Focusing on the day to day life of the daughter of a merciless army officer, Ofelia, as portrayed by Ivana Baquero, the movie interjects between reality and fantasy – blending the two very seamlessly and making for a difficult watch for those who don’t pay full attention!
An IRS Agent (Will Ferrell) who begins to notice the voice of a well-spoken lady narrating his every move, eventually uncovers that he’s the lead character in a well-known author’s latest work.
Infiltrating every part of his life, he soon finds himself powerless to the author’s whim and attempts to track her down in order to make his revelation known.
Comedy/drama/fantasy never tasted so good all at once!
Now, I’m not insinuating that there isn’t more than enough for you to get your teeth stuck into listed above. However, I can’t help but throw a couple more titles into the mixer – just for good measure.
Should you be a big fan of Big Fish, you might just enjoy these equally outlandish yet wholly moving films. In fact, I’ve a firm feeling that you will, even if they don’t fully comply in terms of story development and on-screen narrative.
An investigator is sent to the curious town of Sleepy Hollow in order to investigate the murder-by-decapitation of three of the townsfolk.
One of my personal favourite Johnny Depp performance in a Tim Burton movie (as there are many), the film also benefits from inspiring performances from the likes of Christina Ricci and Miranda Richardson.
Many people are real suckers for a film that spans the entire lifetime of a character. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is without a single doubt one of the best movies of this kind.
Chronicling the life story of a man who’s born old and grows young, the severity of the role is handled expertly by the one and only Brad Pitt. Despite his affliction, Benjamin lives a fruitful life marked by the same pitfalls as that of any other individual born into less remarkable circumstances – this is a strangely inspiring movie.
