Movie Info

Former NYU film-school collaborators, director Jack Perez and actor-writer James McManus, made this private-eye tale on a budget of $165,000. Investigator Lloyd Meadows (McManus) is hired by edgy blonde Jane Danforth (Ellen Goldwasser) to track her cheating husband Peter (Pablo Bryan), who works at a homeless shelter -- so Meadows poses as a homeless man to get the truth about Peter on videotape. Shown at the 1997 AFI Los Angeles Film Festival.


Critic Reviews for The Big Empty

All Critics (4)

A lot of fun, and it has the common courtesy to take a pretty surprising turn in the last act.

It's either an ode to the old-style noir genre or it's a barely disguised rip off, and I'm leaning toward the latter.
