Great conclusion
5 November 2013 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Even short movies are sums of its parts, like movies, but I gotta say "Big Breaks" was a strange film worthy of attention with its final moments since beginning and middle were really uninteresting. David Krumholtz film explores the battle to succeed in the movie business by dealing with talentless and shallow people only concerned with their self images and their sexual reputations with many stars as possible, a world of gossips and back stabbings. In this world, two great friends try to sell their first film project to a potential director at the same time they're under appreciated working next to one of the top film executives in the industry.

It works as a cross between "Swimming with the Sharks" and "The Devil Wears Prada" (Jane Lynch's characterization as a powerful Hollwyood producer mirrors Miranda Wealsey and once again we have two female interns trying to please their devilish boss and with luck get ahead in the business by making their own project). Less funny or critical than those movies, "Big Breaks" value comes in seeing Krumholtz directing his "10 Things I Hate About You" co-star Joe Gordon-Levitt (ok, he was cool play a hyped film director) and the giant rant involving one of the interns which is hilariously funny and one of those moments where you imagine yourself doing to ruthless people one day. Manageable picture. 6/10
