First Trailer for David Gordon Green's 'Manglehorn' with Al Pacino
"Not a day goes by where I don't miss you deeply." This isn't anything like Pineapple Express or Your Highness, but it is another unique film from director David Gordon Green. His latest film, aside from Joe, is the drama Manglehorn starring Al Pacino as an aging locksmith in Texas who longs for the lost love of his life. Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine and Chris Messina also star. This trailer is a rather beautiful setup for a very tragic, low key film that doesn't amount to much. Most of what you see in here is what is in the film. I wish I could say it's even better than this trailer is - since I saw this at TIFF last year and it's okay, not that great. That said, if you have been waiting to see Al Pacino back at his best, start here.
Here's the first trailer (from France) for David Gordon Green's Manglehorn, found via The Film Stage:
Manglehorn is directed by David Gordon Green (of George Washington, Pineapple Express, Prince Avalanche, Joe) written by newcomer Paul Logan. AJ Manglehorn (Al Pacino) is an aging, ordinary guy in a small town. He nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a conversation with the local bank teller every Friday, and eats at the same place every day. But there is more to Manglehorn than meets the eye: he's an ex-con who, 40 years ago, gave up the woman of his dreams for a big 'job'. He now obsesses daily over the choices he made. After a dramatic effort to start over, Manglehorn now faces a terrifying moment and is unmasked as a guy with a very dark past. Manglehorn first premiered at the Venice Film Festival and TIFF late last year. IFC Films will be releasing David Gordon Green's Manglehorn in limited US theaters starting June 19th.
