Review: (#1) There’s a subtlety to the poster that is undone by the lightly colored background.

(#2) This features a gorgeous, scenic backdrop, but it doesn’t otherwise show a strong semblance of life.

Review: One wants to be impressed with an important director releasing a passion project, but this trailer doesn’t entirely alleviate concerns about Martin Scorsese’s latest.

Oscar Prospects:

One of the year’s most promising contenders. No one has seen it yet, so it could be a bomb, but Martin Scorsese’s passion project is sure to garner a lot of support even if it isn’t as good as people want it to be.
