Combining performance footage of Tom Waits and his band with dramatic set pieces, this unique concert film showcases Waits many talents.

Waits plays a number of different characters in short vignettes, such as a ticket taker and a lighting operator. These scenes also incorporate Waits performing songs, which are taken mostly from his “Frank” albums. As the film moves across different areas of the theatre, Waits also performs a series of monologues, demonstrating adept showmanship.

Filmed after the release of his big three breakthrough albums, the footage comes mostly from the closing two nights (in Los Angeles and San Francisco) of his “best ever tour” in 1987. Big Time is a glimpse of a Tom Waits that we won’t see again.
