Film Preview: The Hawk Is Dying (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: C-

Review: Although the washed-out style of coloring seems quite common in recent poster design, it’s still a pleasing blend. That stars Paul Giamatti and Michelle Williams are so prominently displayed and seemingly happy, you wouldn’t need to see the film. Although the trailer isn’t very good, it at least suggests there’s some kind of drama to the film.

Trailer Rating: D+

Review: If you weren’t sick of seeing Giamatti in movies by now, this film should push you over the edge. With such a niche film about a falconer with mental issues, there’s little in the preview that would encourage anyone to want to see it.

Oscar Prospects:

Giamatti got his makeup Oscar nod for Cinderella Man, so they won’t be gung-ho about giving him a nod for such an unusual film.
