Oh, hell yes.

The reviews for this out of Cannes were pretty damn good. And I can see why.

I’m predicting nominations from me for Actor, Actress, Cinematography, Makeup, Original Score, and Sound Mixing, with Picture and Director distinct possibilities.

This is also just a damned well-cut trailer.

Anyway, I’ve got 19 more trailers for you, so let’s get to it:
