Big Fish Part 3
Interesting ending to a somewhat good movie. Nice to know that the old man wasnt completly crazy and had a basis for most of his stories. Though it might seem that the old man had a pretty amazing life without the fabrications, because the truths that he did have were quite different and interesting than most peoples lives. As i said before he did tell these stories to entertain the people around him, as he seemed to be a great conversationist.
Also found it interesting on how water and the big fish seemed to play an important role throughout the film. The old man seemed to be like the big fish alway needing water, i.e him saying he always needed water, him pouring water on his head, lying in the tub, the ending scene with the river. It must have been a big deal, for the son having remembered that in his own story towards the end. I think this was to compare the old man's life story to everyone's favorite big fish story which is brought on by a truth but always altered to create a desired entertainment effect.
