Letters from the Big Man
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Following a painful breakup, Sarah (Lily Rabe) embarks on a post-fire stream survey for the Forest Service in southern Oregon. A journey down a wild and scenic river leads her to a remote wilderness surrounded by scorched landscapes. Here she first senses being followed by a presence that will not reveal itself. Visitation from the “big man” continues more overtly at the remote cabin to which Sarah prepares to write up her fieldwork. A budding romance with a wilderness advocate (Jason Butler Harner) she met on her trip leads to surprising revelations about the government and Sasquatch, and conflicting agendas, that force Sarah to take bold steps to protect the privacy of her big friend, as well as her own.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Munch, whose earlier films include "The Hours and Times," handles this efficiently.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: "Letters from the Big Man" will mystify some, please others with its serenity, and be unlike any Bigfoot movie you have ever imagined.
Fresh: 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.
