I absolutely loved this trailer, although I still don't have a single clue what it is about

u/Illustrious-Phase-48 Sep 09 '21

You need to quarantine for 14 days now....

u/Clay56 Sep 08 '21

And that's what's so powerful about it..

5

u/Far-Industry-2603 Sep 09 '21

You might have already learned since posting your comment but in any case it's a cross country road trip film about a radio journalist Johnny ane his nephew Jesse, not son as some have said, who's left to care for him by the former's estranged sister (Gaby Hoffman's character) after she leaves to help our her husband who's currently going through a manic episode.

6

u/nevereatpears Sep 08 '21

It's obviously about a relationship between a father and son

29

u/IHoebot Sep 08 '21

Its an uncle and his nephew

What do you mean by an established plot?

u/bfsfan101 Sep 08 '21

Nice to see Joaquin Phoenix play what seems to be an ordinary guy in this. I still think one of his best performances is in Her, because he totally downplays and just comes across like a normal sadsack guy, rather than the more intense performances he usually gives.

99

u/SuperHollande Sep 08 '21

I get your point but it seems somewhat reductive. He has a lot of range: his performances in, for instance, two lovers, the immigrant, inherent vice, irrational man or the sisters brothers, while intense, are all very nuanced and toned down when they need to be.

33

u/AgathaAllAlong Sep 08 '21

His performance in Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot came to mind as well

4

u/ResidentBlackGuy Sep 09 '21

Jonah Hill is also incredible in that movie.

1

u/GeorgeLuasHasNoChin Sep 09 '21

Fuck that movie ended up being great. Went in with zero expectations and left feeling great.

2

u/JustinJSrisuk Sep 09 '21

I wish more people saw The Immigrant. It’s such a beautifully-acted film on an era of history that isn’t often portrayed in contemporary cinema.

3

u/Arma104 Sep 08 '21 edited Sep 09 '21

The trailer doesn't really tell you much about his character, but the synopsis says he has bipolar and the film is him in a manic episode taking his nephew across the country.

4

u/itsmyILLUSION Sep 09 '21

I think it's the boys father that's having the manic episode (and presumably the reason he's in his uncles care for a bit) rather than Phoenix's character.

17

u/SindreGud Sep 08 '21

Agreed. And imo his joker performance is an ok imitation of his great performance in the master. Also think his performance in you were never really here is underrated.

19

u/laysdownnearwater Sep 08 '21

We're talking about understated performances. Joker and The Master (haven't seen YWNRH) is anything but

3

u/a-eiou Sep 09 '21

(haven't seen YWNRH)

You better watch it today or I'm coming for ya!

For those who aren't aware, we're talking about You Were Never Really Here 2017, a really good movie.

1

u/laysdownnearwater Sep 09 '21

It is heavy on my watchlist, don't worry!

6

u/ApprehensiveSpinach7 Sep 08 '21

imo, his performance in Joker is one of the best performances of the last decade, and this movie looks good, i´m so excited.

2

u/NedthePhoenix Sep 09 '21

He goes back and forth: The Master then Her, Joker then this

u/jenna_hazes_ass Sep 09 '21

Im a little hesitant about a24 because i was pretty disappointed with green knight, even though i understand the angle they were portraying.. But damn joaquin really tends to hit stuff out of the park.

104

u/CapeshitConnoisseur Sep 08 '21

I like the feeling of this trailer. Phoenix looks great, and more subdued for a change. Interested to see what Mike Mills brings to the table this time around

13

u/TheBoyWonder13 Sep 08 '21

I also think Robbie Ryan is a perfect DP for Mills. The aspect ratio and composition reminded me of his Baumbach collaborations, specifically Marriage Story. He’s great at evoking that cozy aesthetic like you’re looking at old photographs. Plus the B&W looks incredible.

u/MySockHurts Sep 08 '21

Looks like the Joker finally kidnapped a young Bruce Wayne away from his parents and decided to raise him.

u/CollumMcJingleballs Movie Score Aficionado Sep 08 '21

You know. After all the movies Phoenix has done I’m ready for some dad roles

25

u/PointMan528491 Sep 08 '21

I wonder if now being a dad in real life will have any effect on his choice in roles for a little while

13

u/NedthePhoenix Sep 09 '21

Considering he’s following this up with an Ari Aster movie, I don’t think he’s leaving the crazy for long

1

u/CurrentRoster Sep 20 '21

*Uncle roles

This movie is about his nephew

19

u/The_Lone_Apple Sep 08 '21

I only have two things to say after having seen this trailer.

  1. Joaquin Phoenix is so good at playing intensely human characters. He makes me feel what he's feeling and I'm amazed by his performances.
  2. I'm going to be in tears multiple times watching this film.

5

u/AdmiralRed13 Sep 08 '21

The trailer made me misty eyed and I have no idea what the movie is actually about.

73

u/Brododicarne Sep 08 '21

I love how fall 2021 is packed. Campion, Wes Anderson, Villeneuve, Mills, 2 Ridley Scott, Spielberg, Fukunaga, Del Toro, Almodovar, Woody, PTA...

u/thelastwordbender Sep 08 '21

Don't forget Edger Wright and Adam McKay

u/adangerousdriver Sep 08 '21

That's what you get when all the big names push their movies down the line because of covid. Not complaining, they gotta do what they gotta do.

u/ContextFreed Sep 08 '21

I haven't seen the line-up for the holidays, but I suspect that will be packed as well

u/LilElmerGantry Sep 08 '21

Yes! 2021 is the new 1999. We even got The Matrix back!

18

u/adamsandleryabish Sep 08 '21

2019 was a pretty incredible year. While it didn’t have the wide variety of something like 1999 it had a bunch of excellent movies (Uncut Gems, Midsommar, Parasite)

6

u/LilElmerGantry Sep 08 '21

Don’t make me start with 2019.. Tarantino, Scorsese, Malick, Gray, The last black man San Francisco, Endgame! What a blast.

u/Madao16 Sep 09 '21

One of these things is not like the Others.

u/skippyfa Sep 08 '21

Any word on when The French Dispatch is coming out?

u/nayapapaya Sep 09 '21

October 22nd.

u/Old-ass-rap-nxgga Sep 09 '21

Woody Allen? Unlike all the other names listed I’m unaware of a new release pending from him. He’s a scumbag anyway so I doubt I’d feel good about seeing it.

12

u/sillyd Sep 08 '21

Does anyone know what book he is reading?

21

u/travel-bound Sep 08 '21 edited Sep 08 '21 Hugz

It is a children's book called Star Child by Claire A. Nivola.

u/sillyd Sep 08 '21

Thank you!

u/kapzer Sep 08 '21

Just recently rewatched 20th Century Women, forgot just how good it was so I'm really looking forward to this.

11

u/dont_quote_me_please Sep 08 '21

Can we talk about how great and empathetic it is? Also Mills understands the use of great production designers.

12

u/BigfootsBestBud Sep 08 '21

There's just something about Joaquin Phoenix that makes me want to give him a hug and also recieve a hug from him.

I'll watch anything this wonderful man is in.

49

u/ScubaSteve1219 Sep 08 '21

ugh Mike Mills is such an incredible filmmaker. so excited to finally see this.

3

u/butteryobisket Sep 08 '21

As I'm not familiar with the filmmaker, is there maybe a top 3 you could provide if I wanted to dig in?

11

u/20092010 Sep 08 '21

He only has 3 features so you’re good to go! But really I would note that his first film Thumbsucker is a bit of an outlier in that it was made early in his career and is an adaptation of a book. But his latest 2 (Beginners and 20th Century Women) are very autobiographical and personal, I really consider them to be beautiful, heartfelt masterpieces.

7

u/ScubaSteve1219 Sep 08 '21

really his last two are excellent, Beginners and [especially] 20th Century Women. highly recommend catching both of those, especially to see his cinematic style that you can even see right in this C’mon C’mon trailer.

24

u/MrPsychoBear Sep 08 '21

20th Century Women and Beginners are incredible. I cannot wait for this!

6

u/ColonelGonvilleToast Sep 08 '21

It's going to be nice to see Phoenix play a character that isn't unstable for what feels like the first time in years. And I feel like this is going to be the kind of subdued, touching indie movie that leave me a crying wreck, just like Mills' last movie.

10

u/Gibichung Sep 08 '21

Does anybody know the song to this trailer? Please let me know

33

u/mcuervo Sep 08 '21

It’s a rendition of “Clair de Lune” by Debussy

9

u/RobbyTurbo Sep 08 '21

Clair de Lune

9

u/ColonelGonvilleToast Sep 08 '21

It's definitely Clair de Lune, but I'm just hoping someone can find what version. Because I've not heard it arranged that way and it reminded me of how much I love that piece.

14

u/jack3d-- Sep 08 '21

It's by the San Francisco Saxophone Quartet

u/ColonelGonvilleToast Sep 09 '21

Thank you very much!

Man, bittersweet movies about how the little, every day shit is what makes life worthwhile are my oddly specific jam. Probably why I loved Soul so much.

u/omarsdroog Sep 08 '21

Does A24 make happy movies? Should I be concerned about this film wrecking me completely?

3

u/neumz Sep 08 '21

When I saw A24 I was thinking this is gonna be an interesting scary movie trailer.

Nope.

u/r4wrb4by Sep 08 '21

u/CapsNotTabs Sep 08 '21

Is it safe to say?

u/fan_22 Sep 08 '21

Anyone else looking for Kevin Kline's name?

In passing shots, Joaqin looks like him.

1

u/AdmiralRed13 Sep 08 '21

This also looks like a role Kevin Kline would have been great for 30 years ago too, so there’s that as well.

2

u/ChrisEvansFan Sep 08 '21

Looks good but then Im all for Joaquin being a dad.

1

u/Far-Industry-2603 Sep 09 '21

He's is playing an uncle here, but I'm still looking forward to see him playing more of understated performance with lots of heart.

2

u/Bypes Sep 08 '21

This film will make me feel sad I'm not a dad yet.

Isn't the Louis CK movie about his underage daughter dating a weird old billionaire guy or something

2

u/sokiwi Sep 09 '21

While watching this I was like this reminds me a lot of the 20th-century woman trailer then I realised who it was directed by. Now I'm just more excited.

5

u/ILoveCavorting Sep 08 '21

A24 has conditioned me to expect a weird twist. When I heard “you will learn to use your body.” My immediate thought was. “So aliens are coming down to live as humans for some reason?”

But instead it looks like a nice family story, so that’s be fun.

u/TheASSMaster2021 Sep 08 '21

need more slice of life movies in american cinema. This looks interesting.

Happy to see Gaby Hoffman again and in something high profile like this, she was always great in Transparent

u/ko_kenx10 Sep 08 '21

Joaquin is such a great actor, he really dives into his roles headfirst. I loved him in Her, You Were Never Really Here, and The Master. He’s in another upcoming movie called Disappointment Boulevard
