  1. Has a seductive easiness (which may not be for everyone, but it works), a laid-back yet ever-so-slightly portentous score and a wonderful sense of place.

    More amiable than laugh-out-loud funny, the film pokes along, buoyed by the motel's bright Hawaiian color scheme, and a moonlit desert finale that's awfully pretty.

    Hobbled by uninspired stabs at cleverness and surreal narrative curlicues, The Big Empty goes nowhere, replete with a question mark of an ending that isn't worth answering.

    As some previously written reviews put forth... Those that would deny the greatness of this movie need to be handed simplistic plots and fed overbearingly bland characters and finalizing with endings the MIGHT be able to understand. Oh by the way this movie is supposed to make you THINK, so if this is something you are unable to do- go watch Napoleon Dynamite (that would be your level). Expand
