I fckn hate trailers. That one told me exactly zero about WTF the film is about.

That's a point in it's favor imo, I'm so in.

Now time to parse it thoroughly to see how this is Joe Alwyn's response to Taylor's new album and etc

Dislike trailers that give too much away. Ruins the mystery. This was pretty decent.

We are a strongly pro-Yorgos household here so I am seeing this regardless, but I like the trailer. Just enough to seem interesting. Also, at some future point that cast will feel soooo 2024.

guessing that's just a teaser trailer and a longer one will follow.

also, I believe it's been announced that this is an anthology film.

xpost would’ve been a perfect 2024 cast had they added Pedro Pascal and Ayo Edebiri.

Mostly good reviews from Cannes (I've been avoiding reading too much about it).

I have an uneasy suspicion this film may be his 'New Jersey'. Is there a filmic equivalent of that illustrious album btw?

Waterworld

Maybe it’s his Wild at Heart.

I'm always on here complaining about trailers, but I liked the one I saw a couple of weeks ago (haven't checked if it's the same one). Stayed away from Poor Things because of the trailer, but this one I'll see.

(I am, admittedly, highly susceptible to even something as overplayed as "Sweet Dreams" if well used.)

clemenza, Sunday, 19 May 2024 00:26 (two months ago) link

I hated Poor Things. I will watch this, but am maybe coming to the understanding that I just don't like his films

The Lanthimos/Filippou-scripted films seem like an entirely different thing to the two Tony McNamara has written for him though

This was a fucking mess.

Well acted and it looked good, but it seemed like it was written in a day from a bunch of madlibs.

well yeah that would cover all his movies

b) fuck off 3 hours for a smart boy movie

True but this lacked the same desire to tell an interesting story or the strange whimsy that made them feel refreshing. This did have a couple funny moments but it felt like a rushed writing exercise with no attempt to care for entertainment or message. In the whole, it really fell flat.

Agree! My heart sinks every time some name director makes an anthology film with overlapping stories etc etc snooze. If these stories couldn't support a full-length script then they're not good enough to make a film out of, end of story.

I did laugh at the Dio bit though.

And the cop's home video.

Or just make & release them separately as shorts? I'd rather see a good short that uses its time wisely, just as long as it needs to be, than an overly-padded feature.
