in Brief: BIG TIME (2017) DOC NYC 2017

This is a portrait of architect Bjarke Ingels, who won numerous awards while still in his thirties and was chosen to design 2 World Trade Center. The film follows him over the course of six years as he designs, builds and goes through his life.

Wonderful frothy film is a portrait of a man you can’t help but like. Playing as kind of porn film for architecture junkies the film is a celebration of the man and his work. This film is full of some stunning buildings and explains why Ingels constructions are so magical.

I really liked the film a great deal. My only complaint about the film is that I wish it was a bit meatier so that I felt like I had something to write about other than saying the film is really good and you should see it. Seriously I had a good time watching the film and I plan on revisiting it again down the road, away from the crush of DOC NYC (probably when the film opens December 1 for a week-long theatrical run in the Landmark at 57W, which Ingels designed)
