In 1978, Burden owned an antique 16,000 pound freight-truck named "Big Job." Burden wanted to turn the truck into an art project before running into legal and financial troubles which he narrates in Big Wrench, a movie about his relationship with the doomed truck. At once frightening and hilarious, Big Wrench consists of Burden facing the viewer frontally, frankly relaying his story, holding a giant wrench, while images of Big Job flicker behind him. Quickly, it becomes clear that Big Job also acts as a metaphor for the weight of insanity.
