Trailers For American Teen & Blindness

As I mentioned in the last post, this year is looking really great for movies. It’s probably not going to be on par with the pure cinema we were blessed with (There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men) but there are still a lot of promising things to look forward to. The first new movie is called American Teen, a documentary that follows the lives of a bunch of teens living in Indiana going through their senior year of high school. The movie one best directing in a documentary at Sundance, and even though it looks like something you’d see on MTV, it looks a million times better.

The second trailer is for a movie called Blindness, which is directed by Fernando Meirelles (who did City of God) and stars Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. The film is based on the book by José Saramago which is about a nameless city that is struck by an epidemic of blindness, causing everything to go to hell. I love movies like this, kind of a science fact-ion type movie where something like this could potentially happen by some freak of nature. Click here for the official movie website.
