Trailering Like Crazy

Paramount Vantage has released the trailer for Drake Doremus’ indie sensation Like Crazy (Oct. 28), which nabbed the Sundance Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. As Anne Thompson relates in her informative interview with the director today at TOH, Like Crazy is a romantically voyeuristic adventure. Using the Canon 7 Digital SLR camera (photographed by John Guleserian), he captures an improvisational vibe inspired by jazz and the naturalism of Lars von Trier. Judging by the trailer, Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones (The Tempest) are achingly sublime in their intimacy (it has been trimmed to PG-13 by Doremus). At first blush, Like Crazy harkens all the way back to Murnau and Borzage, for starters, yet it’s totally fresh in its post-modern take on first love, in which Brit college student Jones falls for American classmate Yelchin, only to be separated when she violates the terms of her visa. Immersive mise en scène comes in many forms, thankfully.
