  • On the basis of Gigantic, Matt Aselton can make a fine and original film. This isn't quite it, but it has moments so good, all you wish for is a second draft. show more

  • The slacker comedy-drama-romance-whatever Gigantic will fulfill all your alterna-movie weirdness requirements. show more

  • We can be grateful to a stellar cast and some discipline on the part of Matt Aselton, a commercials director making his feature debut, that Gigantic doesn't go completely overboard. Nevertheless, the film will appeal mostly to festivals and adventurous audiences. show more
