Critic Reviews for Letters from the Big Man

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6)

Munch never quite reconciles his psychological and environmental themes, but his characters are so richly imagined and the location photography (by his regular cinematographer, Rob Sweeney) is so gorgeous that the movie still casts a rare spell.

"Letters from the Big Man" will mystify some, please others with its serenity, and be unlike any Bigfoot movie you have ever imagined.

Mr. Munch, whose earlier films include "The Hours and Times," handles this efficiently.

Rabe, especially, suggests luminous depths of wisdom and experience with each captivating expression; she helps to focus a film that is otherwise lamentably scattershot.

Even if Big Man draws only a tiny audience, its inspired alignment of personal and ecological loss will disrupt someone's serenity at least a little.

Distinctive, frustrating and somewhat bewildering.

Audience Reviews for Letters from the Big Man

When I was watching this film, I felt kind of lost in the forest, but then, when I finished it and set aside my laptop, I realized this film went far deeper than it first appeared to me. And I couldn't stop thinking about it for the next few days. In a word, this is one of the movies that remain in your mind for a very long time.
