Truth in Advertising
April 13, 2007
While I’m not necessarily looking forward to seeing Inland Empire (working it tomorrow, as the “early spring snowstorm” moves in) I must admit to liking the trailers for it — if only because I suspect that a long sequence of disconnected images featuring Laura Dern growing progressively more hysterical is probably an excellent summary of the film, and such honesty is rare these days.
21 Apr update: in fact, the Laura Dern hysteria level remains remarkably constant throughout the film. I don’t think anyone who watches it will ever think quite the same way about screwdrivers, rabbits, or Polish clowns ever again.
