Has there has ever been a more pretentious trailer in the history of film?

It looks more insufferable than an A24 film. Which is saying a lot.

For those who don't have the stomach to watch this unbearable trailer, allow me to walk you through it. Over a super-slow motion shot of Cate Blanchett exhaling smoke, a narrator very seriously announces

The global pandemic has had an enormous impact. On our world, our culture, and our very belief systems.

But there are other kinds of plagues that visit us.

And whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power.

The mills of God grind slowly and exceedingly small.

The bee fertilizes the flower it robs.

Power, true power, requires camouflage.

And if you want to don this mask, dance this mask, you must sublimate yourself and your identity.

You must, in fact, stand in front of the public and God, and obliterate yourself.


Cut to: Blanchett furiously conducting an orchestra.

TÁR

Seriously, has there ever been a more pretentious word salad? What has any of these statements to do with the next?

If there's a HomeGoods on the Harvard campus, this is the aisle with the inspirational signs.

Maybe it's blank verse. Because I'm drawing a blank.

Plus - I sure wouldn't want to play in her orchestra. That's some seriously bad fake-conducting. But at least filmed badly as well.

Liked the music, though....

Maybe, but it sure would take a while to find it.

Liked the music, though....

If you mean what she's conducting at the end, that's Mahler! A must-explore composer for any film music fan.

Yes, that's Mahler all right.

Or given the way Cate conducted, maybe more like Mauler.

(Re Mahler: most of the time not a fan, sometimes a fan, don't know why, don't much care.)

You sure it’s Mahler? Sounded more like Star Wars to me.
