We’re in a decidedly curious time in the life of movie trailers (something we’ve talked about repeatedly during the podcast recently), and Keanu Reeves‘ new film generation Um… may turn out to be one of the prime examples of this trend.
Sure, the idea is that we’re trying to visualize the kinetic pace of a particular sub-section of New York’s party lifestyle, and we’re obligated to include the fact that Reeves’ character will be filming people talking, but is the trailer actually conveying anything substantial? Or, if you really think about it, anything at all?
Of course, I don’t know if the film is good or bad at this point, and I wouldn’t say I have huge hopes for it even if the trailer was put together in a way that better relayed information, but I’m forced to wonder, because the plot synopsis sounds pretty interesting. »
