We told you
a few days ago about the music-montage sort-of trailer "internet first look" for Elizabethtown
. I liked that a lot better than this
, the trailer proper, which popped up sometime today. Cameron Crowe has a sense for the marriage of music and image that's really undeniable, and, better yet, he knows exactly when and where to cut any given shot to enhance this. The "first look
" was a great example of exactly how good he is when it comes to montage - it felt perfectly representative of what a Cameron Crowe film should be. I do believe there's a good film behind the lackluster trailer, but it's so covered up in Oscar-bait schmaltz that it's hard to find. I say they should lose the Tom Petty, and allow more of the imagery to speak for itself. What do you think?
