This Week In Trailers: Weinstein, My Moon, Bloodlands, Are We Not Cats, Ugly Delicious
From Slashfilm - February 10, 2018

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times theyre seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we take aim at Harvey Weinstein, take another look at a fairy tale gone horribly awry, get excited for a different kind of animated movie, fall in love with the absolutely wrong person, and try something new to eat.

Weinstein

After so many op-eds, think pieces, hot takes, justifiable written word tongue lashings, and endless speculation about what will happen next with Harvey Weinstein, Im looking forward to taking a step back to survey the decimation.

Anyone who has ever watched a Frontline report on any given subject can agree on just how sharp their blade is when it comes to cutting through hyperbole so as to deliver the unkindest cut of all: an examination into what really brought us to this moment by way of top shelf investigative journalism. This trailer is all I need to be put on alert that this will give us an even deeper understanding of this story.

My Moon

Man, its tough to top Don Hertzfelts World of Tomorrow Episode 2: The Burden of Other Peoples Thoughtsthis year, but My Moon is going to try.

When it comes to using animation to illuminate the inner workings of our soul and what it represents to another artist I am all for directors like Eusong Lee who want to use this medium to tell their own story. This trailer is way too brief, but its simply gorgeous to look at while trying to understand where its going. Its quite alright to not have any idea where it is all leading towards as its just enough to establish that its here, it has something to say, and its worthy of your attention.
