Comments on movies, comic books, and life
At least they don't bill it as a film about a typical WV family.
I hope everyone goes to see it and gets death threats from the assholes just like me.
Stanton: At least...Although, the broad shots of the Welcome to WV sign and the Boone County sign suggest that. Should that same family live in New York City, I doubt the name of the state and the signs leading to them would be important to the title. The title, and those shots, suggest a common stereotype.Bill: I was sorta hoping I'd get such a threat by posting the trailer!
There are multiple mentions in the film (at least in the last cut I saw) that this family is anything but normal. For WV or anywhere else.I dunno though. I'm not gonna defend or condemn it until I see the final cut. Although I must say there are moments in the trailer that I argued should be removed from the final film. But what do I know.PaigePS - And yes, everyone should get a White family death threat every once in a while. Makes for a great story if nothing else... "Mamie White threatened to throw me in a mine shaft one time..."
"one of her three mine shafts up the hollar!"Thanks for the inside scoop, Paige. We'll have lots to talk about if it's released. Stay safe now! :)
It premiered at Tribeca Film Festival list night and appears to be receiving quite a bit of positive buzz. We shall see.
