This Week in Trailers

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?

Yes, really. Read More »

neon movies on letterboxd

Oscar season is always a mixed bag for movie lovers. For many, it’s a chance to heap praise and awards on the best films of last year, but for most others, it’s an exclusive horse race for which they’ve only seen a few of the contenders.

But NEON is making all six of their Oscar shortlisted titles available to anyone with an account on the movie review website Letterboxd.
