‘Burn After Reading’ vs. Elbow

Yes, it’s quiet around here. Yes, I know it. And no, I still don’t have internet at home. AT&T have delayed my hookup because they weren’t able to process that I live at an apartment that includes “1/2” in the address. They say Monday. I’ll believe that when I see it.

Since I have to post form work, and that generally requires that I have some free time, I’m unable to post at all. At least not with any real substance. That’s why I’m all about the video posts these days. So here’s another. The trailer for the new Coen Bros. movie is online and not only does it look like classic Coen material, it kicks off with “Grounds for Divorce” by Elbow, about whom I just blogged. Remember? Nice use of the tune, naturally, which is why I’m posting about it. Synergy and all that.

    Dude. That looks so… energetic. Do all Coen Bros. movies look that energetic? I’ve been watching some of the older ones lately, and I don’t think they felt so fast. Of course, that might be the trailer itself.

    I love the quirkiness of the Coen Bros. This looks like it might be more Raising Arizona-ish than their recent stuff. One can only hope.

    I’m having so much fun with all your trailers!

    Pace-wise, Annika, it’s a far cry from the glacial greatness that is Barton Fink, for example, but I think you’re right, even among the original Coen films, this seems pretty kinetic.

    Raising Arizona is a good call Dana (so cool that you’re reading, too!)
