It's kind of ironic that everyone, myself included, is looking for info on this movie - the meaning, the background production, the cast, the sets, the locations, the music and score...all online.
Very fitting, very normal, but also very telling. A poignant indicator about how 'connected' we are and how we automatically just 'look it up'.
I say, just go see it. That's right. Just go see it. Why spoil the thing, why diffuse the impact by researching it to death beforehand? Movies, like any art, are more than the sum of their parts, much more. But we all seem obsessed with seeing only the parts... from every possible angle, of course - except the one intended. I think we all are driven by an urge to absorb every bit of information online about a thing before we just go and experience it. I don't know, but I suspect this film is about just such a problem that we are all facing now.
I'm a huge fan of Terry Gilliam, especially his masterpiece 'Brazil'. And I've decided right now that watching this trailer is the last thing I will see, read or 'inform myself' about this film before I actually sit down in a theater and see it. No more info. No interviews, no TV spots, no IMDB, no nothing. I've decided to get the full impact of what he wants to present to me in the manner he chose, rather than diffusing it with endless prep and trivia and 'behind the scenes' material, all manner of things that usually end up irreparably spoiling the magic.
Movies are magic, but only if we let them be. I'm going to let this one be.
