I am not watching the trailer. Is it good? Because that poster makes me think that PTA doesn't care about promoting this movie...

It's certainly not Was There A Fight but I've watched it a few times and I quite like it. It's surprisingly restrained and refined and kinda tense. If it's as weird as some have said, they're really keeping it as a surprise. Very different to what we've seen before from PTA.
Gorgeous Greenwood music as expected.

Huh, just noticed. R for language only. Very curious.

Only one viewing so far.  I'm not cringing or rolling my eyes or confused.  It does look gorgeous.  I like that the female lead isn't conventionally, model-stunningly gorgeous (at least by our modern standards).

[edit] 2nd Viewing.  Some mild goosebumps this time.  It certainly seems to be about the shifting nature of their relationship/personal dynamic.  (But, of course, the Inherent Vice trailer told us that film was a goofy, irreverent comedy, so...)  :ponder:

Already read a couple of tweets calling this film "problematic" just from the trailer.

Did these people ever take into consideration that the age difference might be crucial to the plot?

Exactly.  And the (suggestion?) he might be closeted...

I haven't watched the trailer yet but don't be surprised when PTA gets run through the 2017 Woke Filter.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

The reaction to the trailer just now from a female friend of mine who tolerates my PTA-obsessiveness:  "I'd go see that movie..."

Update: Watched the trailer. PTA enters his Merchant Ivory phase?
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
