Worth Watching - June 25: In Search of a Midnight Kiss Trailer
by Alex Billington
June 25, 2008
In my endless pursuit of great indie gems, I came across In Search of a Midnight Kiss, a black and white romantic comedy. If you weren't too pleased with yesterday's Visioneers trailer, this one is a lot better. This is another low budget indie, but the black and white adds an incredible feeling to the romance and and it just looks like one hell of a great film. Watching this trailer makes me think of Sundance and how much I miss seeing so many great films up in snowy Park City. The first part of this trailer is rather cliché, but if you can stand to get past it, you'll find something truly great as it continues on. I do feature a lot of odd indie trailers, but this is one of my personal favorites from this year so far.
I love these two quotes: "It will restore your faith in indie films" and "recalls Woody Allen's Manhattan." Well chosen quotes, as they instill quite a bit of confidence in me for this film. The trailer itself already makes me want to watch more indies anyway. Hopefully this is as good as all the reviews are saying.

Lovely trailer. Definitely adding to my 'To Watch' list. Is that Okkervil River I hear?

Wow. Not surprised to see that it's produced by the same lady who did Before Sunrise. You really get a similar feeling. Nice!

I saw this film at the Austin Film Festival last year. It is well performed, fun to watch, and there are moments in which the videography (?) looks great. Overall, though, its nothing special. But check it out anyway.

Yes, it is Okkervil River/Shearwater music as well as other great bands. There is a new Okkervil River track in the movie that is one of my all time favorites by Will Sheff.

Looks good but why is it called for to be in black and white?

looks fun... I have to differ a little from ya on the Black and White.. have spot scenes in B&W or such may have worked for me... I like the class it presents... but it just did not work as much for me Looks like a fun film though

This is a total bite. So many others have produced better and more authentic films. Needless to say the acting is over done. There were times where I thought to myself, "should I leave," cause the film was that retarded.
