Branded opens tomorrow in a fairly wide (306 theaters) limited release. Trailer looks pretty promising, if a bit John Carpenter’s classic They Live fused with Vincenzo Natali’s (utterly under-appreciated masterwork) Cypher. But i fucking loved those movies. Why wouldn’t i want to see more like them? More concerned about the apparent simplistic “durrr capitalism bad” theme, but strong visuals can forgive alot, and don’t have to agree with a film’s ideology to enjoy it.
Between this, Resident Evil: Retribution, Looper, and Dredd, it’s looking like the best September for movies since 2006, when Crank and Idiocracy were released on the same weekend.
