Trailers: Mister Lonely & Blindness

This one, Mister Lonely, played at the IFF Boston and has a limited release in the US on April 30. It's about a bunch of people who live their lives impersonating celebrities. It's by Harmony Korine, the guy who wrote KIDS and directed Gummo and like all good movies, it has Werner Herzog in it. Looks kinda magical.

Blindness stars Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo and has Gael Garcia Bernal in a smaller role. It's another one of those apocalyptic type movies, except unlike others, people are inexplicably going blind instead of dying. It's directed by Fernando Meirelles (City Of God) so it automatically has some potential. I look forward to seeing it when it comes out in October.
