“It’s easier to understand the idea of death than the reality of life, and so we make an industry of waiting, imagining our end lumbering toward our vain and cubicled selves, inventing the selfish moral blank spots we suspect ourselves of being.”
I love film trailers so very much. I enjoy watching them, and often search for new ones, both official and fan-made. What really bothers me though, is the common inability to cut a good one. I’ve seen so many trailers where the whole theme and the point of focus are somethig totally different than what they were in the film. I guess the point is just to sell the film, but if the trailer is misleading, I don’t see the sense of purpose.
Despite not seeing this film and not knowing anything about the misleadingness issues, I wanted to share a trailer. Because this one is a story itself, a piece of editing art, and enough as it is. (But I must admit realizing that if the trailer is so good that you don’t really need the film at all, maybe it doesn’t work very well after all.)
Here, one of the official trailers for the film La Grande Bellezza, 2014. Enjoy the great beauty.
