Movie Info

The puckish Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has built his career on defying convention and distancing himself from his peers. He is 39 years old, founder of a company pretentiously and provocatively called BIG and is on his definite way to becoming one of the world's most innovative and successful contemporary architects. According to The Wall Street Journal he has 'rapidly become one of the design world's biggest stars'. Bjarke Ingels' ambitions are extremely high. He wants to build the most significant and memorable building of his era. Even though he is currently building a spectacular skyscraper in New York he longs to design a building that can truly be considered as one of the great buildings in the world--a building that will shape the future of architecture. Nothing less. Nothing is impossible.

[An] elegant documentary ...

Dec 1, 2017 | Full Review…

Ingels's life comes across as exhausting, stressful and, at least until the last 30 minutes, lonely.

Mr. Schroder's film seems expressly designed to further burnish Mr. Ingels's reputation.

Occasionally gets bogged down in the sort of minutiae that would have been better left on the cutting room floor, but it also provides an insightful depiction of the personal and professional travails that inevitably accompany career success.

A film for casual lovers of modern architecture and aficionados, both.

While Schröder has proven on multiple occasions to be a powerful documentarian capturing uniquely engaging instances and peoples, Big Time doesn't even come close to being on par with that of his previous works, and is borderline forgettable as a result.
