Move over Hollywood Shuffle, The Big Wes is in Town
5 September 2010 | by maximumproductionsSee all my reviews

the Big Wes is one of those independent gems that scores big thanks to it's honesty, humor and traditional underdog story. I'm not just saying that since I DP'd two scenes (Flashback retelling of how they met from Trevor's perspective and the ending). Filmmaker/Actor Damian Bailey truly captured the persona of Wesley Snipes. In the screening, there were a room full of people who had no idea what to expect. What we got were 80 minutes of pure laughter and quotable lines. The Big Wes could very well become a classic like Hollywood Shuffle, CB4, and many more. Kudos to the filmmakers. I would love to see what they could do with a bigger budget. Buckle up for nonstop laughter.
