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.
