Press

  • "Big Significant Things feels like the sort of movie Alexander Payne could have directed in his early days."- Spl!ng
  • "[Big Significant Things] happens to be a comfortably paced, character-driven film, and it feels like it's been done with the control of a veteran, even though this is Reisberg's directorial debut." - Pop Culture Spin
  • "It feels like the work of a veteran filmmaker with several features under his belt; it's impressively refined and slick in appearance." - Movie Mezzanine
  • "Slow build tactics work well for this psychological character sketch...A good-looking debut." - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "Binding it all together is Lloyd, who bravely explores the inner world of a guy who really doesn’t have much going on in there. If it’s possible to draw a detailed portrait of a man as seen through the reflection of a reflection, then here it is." - The Film Yap
  • "[Harry Lloyd] killed it. His happy-go-lucky demeanor that gradually gets chipped away as things start to go wrong is perfectly executed and acts as an incredibly interesting character study. It's exactly the light kind of indie fare one could want from a festival film." - Film Pulse
  • "As a wry confection, the dialogue here engages; the cinematography and direction also rate top marks." - Austin Chronicle
  • "Lloyd is spot-on as a young man who is sheepishly charming enough to draw you in but whose slightly off-kilter moments are delivered with just the right amount of creepiness to keep you wondering just what might be coming next." - Smells Like Screen Spirit
  • "Big Significant Things is a magnificent gem of a film that asks more questions than it gives answers, and rightly so." - Next Projection
