Big Blues Problem
4 February 2000 | by Ordell-5See all my reviews

When I saw the cast of an interesting sound of title I thought it's gonna worth, but the film got a one Big-Blues –Problem ... a director. Usually when story is written and directed by one person, film is going to be good, but in this particular example, this law doesn't work. I mean this could be a good film, well but it wasn't ... Big City Blues got some funny scenes, good (as usually) acting by Giancarlo Esposito, and nothing more.
