Part of me is really curious to see a trailer, but, yeah....if they didn't release one at all I'd be fine with that.

Guillermo del Toro Is Working On A Documentary About Michael Mann
via The Playlist

On the face of it, you probably couldn’t imagine two filmmakers more dissimilar than Guillermo del Toro and Michael Mann. The former creates intricate fantasy worlds, weaving fairy tales and dark-edged stories, with his own distinct fingerprint and creative spirit. The latter is a filmmaker who studies characters obsessed with process, shoots with precision, and places an emphasis on realism. However, both filmmakers are immaculate craftsmen, which makes this next bit of news tremendously exciting.

At the Lumičre Film Festival, Cannes honcho Thierry Fremaux presented the recent director’s cut of Michael Mann’s “Heat,” and revealed a fascinating nugget of information: Guillermo del Toro is making a documentary about Michael Mann.

That’s about all the details there are at the moment. There’s no word if it’s a feature (though Mann certainly has the filmography to support that), or if it’ll be the kind of thing with an extra feature on something like a release by The Criterion Collection.

I remember wanting a trailer for Inherent Vice and it was dreadful, but, come on, we don't need it. And I won't watch this one. I don't want to have a peak to the mood/the look/anything. Let's happily wait for what is coming. It is coming. :)

Yeah, I was being sarcastic (which is why I said, "slightly upset!"), but I guess sarcasm doesn't always come across well on the internet. PTA can take as much time as he wants with a trailer. He could even not release one at all and I'd be fine with that. :P But I do want a peak at the general tone and cinematography. I'm super excited for this one because the photography, direction, and story is ALL PTA. It's not often a film of this budget and quality gets made with all of these things overseen by one person. Plus Daniel Day Lewis .... Anyway, I'm off topic now.  :doh:

Hmmm ... it's Monday, prime trailer-posting day. They'd better post a trailer by noon California time or else ... or else ... I will be slightly upset!

I'm not a huge fan of Baumbach's stuff (WA collabs aside) post but this was okay. It held my interest, but not great. Like wilberfan said, great cast, and that's what held it for me. For all those reviewers saying this is next-level Sandler, though, even PDL aside, he's not doing anything here that he hasn't done before in, say, Reign Over Me. I did really like the very, very ending though - like an anti-Raiders ending. Not everything is forgotten. Overall, though, it's unremarkable and forgettable. Pure manifestation of what "a Netflix original" has come to mean.

I would love some recommendations on low-key dramas similar to You can count on me and maybe The Shape of Things, preferably from the beginning of the 00s. They are so comforting to watch for some reason.

You can count on me are also the perfect film to watch before going to sleep. It might be the Mark Ruffalo effect. I would much rather watch a film if Ruffalo is in it, and I haven't decided if it's a gay-crush yet or if it's one of those manly dude-crushes you have on someone like Marlon Brandon, but he's weirdly great, right? Right!?

Anyway..

I can't say I've seen those so my rec may be a bit off, but the great master of low-key drama is Koreeda.
Shillin' my thread below.

Still Walking and Nobody Knows are good starting points.

Off the top of my head: Me Without You, Dreamland (2006), Shattered Glass, The Dreamlife of Angels, Never Let Me Go, Blue Car, Junebug, Drinking Buddies, Brooklyn

Oh, yeah. I was going to watch these years ago, but never did for some reason. Thanks.
