I’ve been catching up on the films I missed at festivals – this past week I finally saw the astonishing Aussie crime drama Animal Kingdom and the thrilling Ozark noir Winter’s Bone - but Dogtooth, a Greek film, has yet eluded me. And the new trailer for the movie, which Kino is opening in New York City on June 25th, makes that so much more agonizing. This looks like a great film, and that’s before knowing it won Un Certain Regarde at Cannes last year. My good friend James Rocchi (who pointed me in the direction of this trailer on his Twitter feed) is gaga for the movie, and he’s a man of serious taste.
Here’s the latest trailer for the movie, which just has me jazzed. Hopefully it’s coming to LA soon.
