More a note to self: Robert Eggers’ NOSFERATU is about to go into test screenings. So details will leak. I’m interested in this, because NOSFERATU is a brave and crazy thing to attempt, and I like that.
I’ve seen trailers, and, I think, a clip or teaser, for Timm Kroger’s THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, and here’s a review, in which this caught my eye:
It’s like Carol Reed shooting the best Philip K. Dick/Agatha Christie collaboration.
Speaking of PKD, the prologue – the German TV interview – also seems indirectly inspired by an incident in the writer’s career. While attending a conference in which Dick was to receive the critical attention for which he had yearned for so many years, he blew it all by claiming his books were inspired by interstellar communications. Whether this was a sincerely held belief is open to interpretation, but it does show the danger of playing with reality (and amphetamines, in legendary doses).
I’m hoping that MUBI gets it.
The Norwegian series THE ARCHITECT sounds great, and here’s a piece on its design choices. This image gave me strong WORLD ON A WIRE vibes for some reason.
The trailer is terrific.
