Big Significant Things?
25 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Directed and written by Bryan Reisberg and I believe this project is his first movie beyond shorts and documentaries. The visual style is very well done and engaging. The music was well done in my opinion as well. The basic premise of the story at face value is that Craig Harrison, played by Harry Lloyd, and his girlfriend plan to take the next step into their relationship and will travel and look over locations for a house for both of them. They communicate by phone and he misleads her about what he is really doing while he goes on a road trip of the Southern United States with plans to visit sites that have the world biggest objects, alone.

Sounds like it could be full of potential. Which is one reason why I decided to check it out. The real story is of a guy running away from commitment and maybe even responsibilities in life. The road trip is just an excuse to himself to be away from his girlfriend.

I think the actors did the best they could and there are some entertaining moments but overall the story is at best bland. Maybe I missed something and it was intentionally done that way. I don't think it is a must see and would say pass on it unless you want to see it for the visual style and the bits of fine acting that does take place within it. I do look forward to seeing Bryan Reisberg's next film and expect a better story line in the future.
