Early Teaser Poster for Sundance Favorite 'Animal Kingdom'
One great film that I saw very early on at the Sundance Film Festival was Animal Kingdom, directed by Australian filmmaker David Michôd. No, it has nothing to do with Disneyland or even animals at all, it's an intense Departed-like drama about a family of bank robbers in the underworld of Melbourne, Australia. It's a fantastic film, one of my favorites of this fest, even though I never wrote a review for it. I'm hoping it gets picked up for release because I want so many people to see it. But until it gets bought, you can check out this very sleek early teaser poster for the film (courtesy of IMPAwards). Bold design, but I like the look of it.
Here's a little blurb on Animal Kingdom from the Sundance film guide: "Wielding a formidable cinematic lexicon, writer/director David Michôd shows complete command of every frame as he shifts between simmering intensity and gut-wrenching drama. There isn't a false note in the film as it follows through on the tantalizing promise displayed in his short films and unleashes a fierce new voice in Australian cinema." Complete agree with everything they said. I just recorded a video talking about the film tonight, which will be up this weekend. Make sure you add this film to your list of films to see from Sundance, it's worth it!
