The trailer for Meek’s Cutoff dropped 2 days ago, but I held off posting because the quality was poor. This looks to be a film that deserves to be introduced with a premium presentation. Notably the first feature film shot by cinematographer Chris Blauvelt but he’s been camera operator for some of the greats for more than a decade — working with Harris Savides on Fincher’s The Game and Zodiac, Christopher Doyle on Paranoid Park Elephant, Lance Acord on Where the Wild things Are, and Eduard Grau on A Single Man.
Meeks’s Cutoff is directed by Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy) and last September was chosen by the critics who voted in indieWIRE’s poll as the best narrative film at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
(Thanks, Faux!) Check out the bone-dry poster after the cut.
