“Fame is a drug and Japan is the connection in this fascinating new doco.”

Travis Johnson, FilmInk

“…a remarkable, twisted, very funny odyssey into the worlds of media-saturation and fame infatuation.”

Jim Schembri, 3AW


“….even where he fails, Dave’s awkward charm and his unfaltering commitment to the project, whether he’s parading through the world’s busiest intersection in a loincloth or drinking anything that goes through a blender dressed as a Japanese vegetable, keeps the film funny and entertaining.”

Jake Tired, The AU Review

“BIG IN JAPAN feels like it started as a lark that would lead to success...What it turns into is an interesting exploration of celebrity in the modern world and the toll that celebrity takes on those who are famous."

Andrew Pierce, AB Film Review

“BIG IN JAPAN is a heartfelt and earnest film that gets more and more charming as it unfolds.”

Michael Zubreckyj, Milkbar Mag

“BIG IN JAPAN is a striking study of the euphoria and anxiety, the fatigue and exhaustion that comes with the search for stardom in the saturated social media world.”

Richard Cotter, Sydney Arts Guide
