Shutter Island Trailer Promises a Straight Up Genre Film from Scorsese

10 June 2009 6:27 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Colour me intrigued with Martin Scorsese‘s actor-studded, gothic horror-thriller-mystery Shutter Island.  The trailer popped up on today and begs the question:  Where else could the assemblage of Michelle Williams, Max Von Sydow, Leonardo Dicarprio and John Carroll Lynch occur in the same film other than a huge directorial draw like Scorsese? (Oh, did I mention Mark Ruffalo, Jackie Earle Haley, Emily Mortimer, Ted Levine, Elias Koteas, Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley?  Yea, they’re in here too.  It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Asylum!)  The film is genre-y and classy at the same time, and I must say, I am digging it.  A lot.  This is simply handsome craftsmanship.  Come fall we’ll find out if Scorcese has something more than just a spooky story up his sleeve.  But for now, that will do.

David Lynch, Straight Up And Mashed

David Lynch has launched Interview Project, a "20,000 mile road trip over 70 days across and back the United States," in which Lynch and his team interview ordinary people. "It's something that's human and you can't stay away from it," Lynch says on the promo teaser currently up on the site. It's a simple idea, and from the teaser it seems very Straight Story, but I have to admit that the faces of the interviewees and the basic questions they pose to themselves will have me back at the site on June 1 when it formally launches. Click on the link above to see the trailer and to sign up for the Interview Project mailing list. And as long as he are talking about the director, here's some Lynchian frippery courtesy of Buzzfeed: their five »
