The Big Buy – Movie Reviews

FYI: I went to elementary and high school with John Bryant, who composed the soundtrack for this film.

"The Big Buy" presents its evidence clearly and with a welcome sense of humor.
– New York Times

“In tone and texture, the film suggests a hard-boiled mystery of the 1950s with a brassy film noir soundtrack and a Raymond Chandler feel.”
– Wayne Slater, Dallas Morning News (Bush’s Brain)

“Mark Birnbaum and Jim Schermbeck methodically assemble a damning case against U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay”

“The filmmakers capture a battle for the soul of a state and country”
– Village Voice

Birnbaum and Schermbeck create a film noir atmosphere. The stylistic choice seem appropriate given the dark, disturbing subject matter and the chilling presence of anti-hero DeLay.
