From a bland tract house on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Simon Geist (with occasional help from his platonic girlfriend Darla) wages war against all of modern American popular culture. Geist starts up a magazine called "The Next Big Thing", which he uses to confront and insult upcoming actors, comics, models and rock bands. As Geist's mysterious Underground Agenda escalates, will he become the "last big thing", or be co-opted by the very forces he is railing against?Written by

Ultra no budget commentary on the dumbing of America
Zukovic's first (maybe "last") feature. Reportedly shot in the VERY low six figures. This rant against 90's postmodernism and America's self referential popculture tailspin contains some sardonicly hilarious moments wedged between selfconscious "Byronic Poses".
If you like all the Big Budget Lost In Space sitcom rehashes that pass for "A" movies this is not for you. If you are disgusted with the turn Hollywood has taken since the 70's it is worth a buck rental for sure.
Short on the human side and reaching for that epic gesture (a difficult thing to do even when you have a budget) Big Thing is flawed, but laying prostrate in the right direction.
