trailers for Alex Ross Perry's Queen of Earth
with Elisabeth Moss and Katherine Waterston. The French trailer is very good, but I'd avoid the American one -- overlaid with grating faux-grindhouse narration -- like a plague.
That said, if Criterion does handle the release -- though the way they're trying to sell this, I could see it going to Scream Factory (like Duke of Burgundy
, also not a Midnight title) -- I wouldn't mind them using some variation of the poster included in the second link, which seems to effectively accomplish what the dismal trailer fumbles around.
I'm reminded of a recent interview with Guillermo del Toro where he explains that he doesn't have trouble getting projects funded because they're expensive or weird, but because he won't employ the winking self-awareness so prevelant these days. Imagine Repulsion
or 3 Women
advertised with such labored, condescending irony.
