Trailer Blazer: 'Mister Lonely'

Misterlonely_lI’ve never been a big fan of filmmaker Harmony Korine and his shock-the-bourgeoisie freakshows (Kids, Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy), and I’m not sure Mister Lonely (due May 2) is going to change my mind. It’s about a group of celebrity impersonators who form a commune of sorts in a Scottish castle. But I’m certainly intrigued by the unlikely cast, which includes Y Tu Mamá También‘s Diego Luna (pictured) as the group’s Michael Jackson, Samantha Morton as its Marilyn Monroe, plus such other walking indie oddities as Werner Herzog, David Blaine, and Anita Pallenberg. (All that’s missing is Dieter from Sprockets.) Plus, the trailer makes the film look like it actually has a plot, albeit of the sentimental, lovable-misfits, King of Hearts variety. I’m curious enough to check this out. You?

    Looks cool. I really like Werner Herzog’s flicks, and I love listening to him speak so that ups my “I’d like to see this, provided it comes to my area” factor. Speaking of – I work at a mental health facility in Xenia (of Gummo fame) Ohio. And let me tell you – they HATE that movie here.

    I enjoy Diego Luna, and this sounds interesting. And greetings from a Beavercreek, OH resident, Kathleen.

    I’ll say this: The trailer makes me interested.

    I actually just wrote about this trailer on TrailerSpy.com (http://www.trailerspy.com/featured-trailers/2008/03/17/mister-lonely-the-most-elaborate-game-of-make-believe/)
    I think it’ll make a good rental, but I’m not going to seek it out in the theater.

    How does Harmony Korine continue to get work?

    I’ll do it for Diego Luna. Otherwise, it looks like it could be a bit self indulgent and overblown in it’s moral messages. But I’ll check it out.

    Anyone who can direct a scene involving eating a plate of spaghetti while taking a bath is alright with me.
