One of the stand out films from this year’s BFI London Film Festival finally has a UK trailer – and what a singularly wondrous trailer it is.
In his review (which you can read in full in our Carol issue) Anton Bitel says of the film: “The painted backdrops, the vaseline-smeared lenses, the tinted images, the overwrought gestural performances, the hyperbolic score, the endless succession of sensationalist, bizarre and often lewd intertitles – these retro stylings have become the signature of Maddin’s work, and here they are the gooey glue that beautifully, if barely, holds together his polydiegetic free associations.”
If that hasn’t sufficiently whet your appetite, why not give the trailer a whirl…
The Forbidden Room is released 11 December.
