Obviously this trailer for Michael Polish‘s Big Sur, a Sundance 2013 Premiere, works. Definitely gets your attention, draws you in, makes you swoon. The reasons are M. David Mullen‘s cinematography, and the Flamingos’ 1959 version of “I Only Have Eyes For You” (“kuhluck-kuhluck”). The rants of Jack Kerouac (Jean Marc Barr) are well-written and fiercely performed, but I know all about this. Creation enters when it wants to and leaves when it wants to. The artist is only a conduit.
Glenn Campbell‘s “Hey Little One” also helps out.
