Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Munch never quite reconciles his psychological and environmental themes, but his characters are so richly imagined and the location photography (by his regular cinematographer, Rob Sweeney) is so gorgeous that the movie still casts a rare spell."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Rabe, especially, suggests luminous depths of wisdom and experience with each captivating expression; she helps to focus a film that is otherwise lamentably scattershot."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"An ambitious, warm-hearted drama about the Sasquatch."
‑ Mike Goodridge, Screen International
""Letters from the Big Man" will mystify some, please others with its serenity, and be unlike any Bigfoot movie you have ever imagined."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Even if Big Man draws only a tiny audience, its inspired alignment of personal and ecological loss will disrupt someone's serenity at least a little."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"Mr. Munch, whose earlier films include "The Hours and Times," handles this efficiently."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Distinctive, frustrating and somewhat bewildering."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
