Film Trailer: BORGMAN
This trailer definitely has the feeling of unease part down. Borgman, written and directed by Alex van Warmerdam, is a Dutch film that was a pretty big hit at last year's Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals. A serious looking thriller, that evidently has touches of black comedy, but I see straight on thriller throughout this trailer. It has that cool, smooth, glorious look like all European films have and the trailer completely works for me. And, if it is anything like the great films of Michael Haneke or as good as the Greek film Dogtooth, I will be very impressed. Drafthouse Films, the film distribution company of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, will be releasing Borgman on June 6th. Good deal, because that means it will open in Austin! And by the way, the Drafthouse is the only place to go watch a movie comfortably and enjoy a quality beer. Here is the trailer. Enjoy.
