This Is How You Make a Trailer (And Really, A Movie)

I’m extremely intrigued by Get Low, this slightly insane Bill Murray-Robert Duvall-Sissy Spacek extravaganza:


The trailer reveals a whole lot about the movie’s frame narrative, but gives precisely nothing away about the characters’ motivations and connections to each other. More trailers should be cut like this, and more movies constructed the way this seems to be. I don’t necessary mean we need more twist endings, just stories that take time to develop, like the relationships between people do in real life. Emotional verisimilitude is underrated.
