  1. el.'s rating of the film Big River Man

    3,5/5. Not impressive on the technical side, but such a massive presence of life and energy are simply beautiful.

  2. rowdyman's rating of the film Big River Man

    As a film, it's a bit of a mess, but as a subject, it is undeniably fascinating. There are obvious nods to Apocalypse Now/Heart of Darkness, but you may also be reminded of Aguirre or Fitzcarraldo.

  3. Pierre's rating of the film Big River Man

    Incredible story but I couldn't play along with alot of Maringouin's "mood" editing. This also left me quite concerned as it charts some troubling events yet offers little insight or closure to them. In interviews Strel seems quite eloquent and jovial and not at all as despondent as the film suggests, so maybe the filmmaker couldve benefited from some of his own perspective in the post-mortem.

  4. Kaifu's rating of the film Big River Man

    A truly wonderful and cinematic documentary on an eccentric man and an equally fascinating journey. Why isn't this movie more well-known? Because he's fat and a Slovenian?
