Coherence, trailer and poster


Matt Zoller Seitz, “Coherence is proof that inventive filmmakers can do a lot with a little. Written and directed by James Ward Byrkit, the movie starts out looking and feeling like half the no-budget indies you’ve seen: a bunch of seemingly well-off people attend a dinner party at a nice suburban house somewhere in Northern California on the night that a comet is scheduled to pass near the earth. They introduce themselves to each other, hang out, drink, eat and deliver expository banter. Then things get weird, and weirder.”

That’s all I want to know! Anyone who’s this already, please keep your comments spoiler-free. Thanks. Trailer and poster after the cut.

    Thanks! This wasn’t at all on my radar. I love that the trailer doesn’t give away anything so much that I would not have been able to tell that it’s “sci-fi” were it not for quotes. I would have said something silly like “omg CLUE meets THE CHANGELING meets THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL!” when in all likelihood that’s totally offbase.

    Additionally, always interested in “proof that inventive filmmakers can do a lot with a little”!

    I’ve seen it. Won’t spoil it, save to say that you should DRASTICALLY lower your expectations. It’s an OK short dragged out to feature length.
