Life in the Twenty-First Century

Amazing trailer for movie by Bernard Knowles, who was a cinematographer for Hitchcock and ended his career “co-directing” with the Beatles on their Magical Mystery Tour TV movie. More on him soon.

Crazy rhythm, freeze-frames, effulgent acting (Wee John Cairney goes CHOP!) and Bill Williams as the ludicrously named “Captain Mead Ralston.” The kind of name Brits think all Americans have. Also, there’s a tiny Mark Lester in there, even before his FAHRENHEIT 451 walk-on. But mostly I love the harebrained way this moves.

“Take a letter.”

Please note — it is set just over a year from now. Aren’t you excited?
