BIG TIME
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 87 min, USA, Dir: Chris Blum

Singer-songwriter Tom Waits takes the stage for this superb concert film, shot in San Francisco and Los Angeles while he was touring behind his Franks Wild Years album. Working with one of his best bands (including guitarist Marc Ribot), Waits’ take on blues and jazz is off-kilter, flecked with humor (in between-song vignettes) and altogether gripping.
