What if filmmakers did their own vision of xmas morning?
Indie tween with a queer twist and a cherry on top? Is this really the film you wanted to make? Please indie filmmakers stop clinging to this overdone crumbling aesthetic. Your trailer looks like 500 other films. Try to be an individual with an individual voice, I would not watch your film, doesn't matter that's its free, marketing only matters when you make something tons of people probably want to see. Best of luck in your future work.
Malick is aware of the fluidity of time and the invisible world. He persuades a spiritual vision not unlike Bach does musically. His new one Knight of Cups seems obvious to me, he is talking about sin and redemption just in the trailer. Modern filmmakers need to read more, take liteture classes, learn storytelling. Example: If you don't know the name of the symphony music in "To the Wonder" you should not be commenting on Terrance Malick's film work, it's beyond you now, hopefully not always, but that's up to the individual. Why treat his work any different than Da Vinvci's or Klemt or Bowie. The man is making conscious references, it's not his fault you don't understand. Art being subjective is total crap and a refuge for the lame.
