Review: (#1) The choice of black-and-white might be the worst decision made even if symbolic to the film’s themes. The lack of background details make for dull viewing.
(#2) A black-and-white design that feels fitting, but also bland and vacant.
Trailer Rating: B-

Review: It’s a straightforward trailer that explains what’s going on and tries very hard to elevate the film’s importance. While the cast is solid, the premise is laid out lazily and it ultimately feels like something we don’t really need to see.
With no buzz heading into Oscar season, this film seems to have come out of nowhere and that’s seldom a good sign for Oscar contention in spite of its stellar cast.
