Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we’ve got an instructional video on making money in the drug trade, along with a look at the immigration effort, the economic juggernaut that is our modern prison system, and a documentary from the director of Hoop Dreams who has a thing to say about concussions as we head into the NFL’s opening weekend.
