Is this movie trailer serious?
Film trailers that are too long annoy me. Especially the ones that are trying too hard. And nothing is trying hard than this film called I Origins!
So much to dissect. Firstly, it’s trying to hard to have an atmosphere only Spike Jones can create. And Michael Pitt is supposed to be smart. Because he is a scientist! And wears glasses! And has a tragic love affair! Way to go for giving away most of the plot- he ends up dating the model whose eyes he sees on the billboard, who is a French manic pixie dream girl, only to travel to India to find her eye-double. Also, I love how he gets off the plane in India and is all “has anyone seen these eyes” as if the country doesn’t have a gazillion people. And then he find her and then…what? Falls in the love with the little girl? Also, the title. I see how it’s a play on ‘Eye Origins’ but why not just call it that?
So much to hate I’m practically giddy!
