Big Time

Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
1988
Rating:
PG
Big Time is the 1988 concert film of the legendary singer songwriter Tom Waits. It was directed by Chris Blum. It is not a typical concert film, but would you really suspect such a thing from Waits? In the film Waits takes on various characters from within his songs as he himself plays a character who is asleep and dreaming of the performances. He also takes on the personas of stage hands controlling the stage lights and the ticket taker in the front booth of the theatre. The film features Waits at his wild storytelling best as he gives absolutely riveting and wild performances of songs such as Hang On St. Christopher, I'll Take New York, Innocent When You Dream, More Than Rain, Shore Leave, and more from his late 80s albums such as Frank's Wild Years, Rain Dogs, and Swordfishtrombones. If you are a fan of Tom Waits this is a must see. Unfortunately it is hard to find as it is not available on DVD. It is available streaming on Netflix though.moreless
