"The movie is filled with a lot of silence and empty stares that would make Bella Swan proud. The audience is forced to come to their own conclusions about what awaits Craig when he returns home and what’s going on in his head. While open-ended movies can work wonderfully (Inception, for example), Big Significant Things never engages its audience, takes any chances to fully commit to anything, much like Craig’s life. This at times can be frustrating and scenes of pure silence which seem to drag on forever doesn’t really help. "
