REVIEW: I'm not sure how to write this review because "Letters From the Big Man" is probably my favorite movie I've seen as an adult. Yes, really.
This movie is done with the utmost respect for Bigfoot and for man and nature and the harmony of the three when we are following our hearts.
It is a slow-paced movie and it needs to be in order to put across the fact that, until man slows down and is one with nature, he will not find the Big Man. It's the same way in the ghost world. We rush around with equipment set up and meters and cameras and recorders and we forget the important organic aspect of communication--sitting still, silence, becoming keen with your senses, opening up your heart, slowing down your mind. The pacing of the movie is ideal for the message and the musical soundtrack I seriously want to own. If that was playing the background all day in my home, I would be the most happy woman in the universe.
I kept inserting myself into the lead female role in this movie. It was everything I ever dreamed of, being one with nature, trekking around Oregon woodlands, communing with nature, sketching, leaving some treats out for the man of the woods. Lots of people have attempted Bigfoot movies, but none has ever captured so accurately the essence of these woodland folks and their tenuous relationship with man. We have more to learn from him that he does from us.
Please see this film. I promise you that it will be your favorite Bigfoot movie of all time. I am simply speechless at this point and I so will leave it at that. It is truly the best $25 I have ever spent on something that gives me amazing peace and reunited me with my divine.
