Big Empty, The (2003, USA) C-94m. ** D: Steve Anderson. Starring Jon Favreau, Joey Lauren Adams, Bud Cort, Jon Gries, Daryl Hannah, Adam Beach, Gary Farmer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Brent Briscoe, Sean Bean, Patti Smith, Danny Trejo. A good cast does not make a cult movie: Minor crime drama about luckless actor Favreau, who accepts the job of bringing a suitcase to a twon in the middle of nowhere, gets involved in murder and alien abductions. Starts out nicely, but final third is a letdown. Do not wait for the STP song of the same title. Written by the director.
