TRAILER WATCH: SWANBERG AND WINGARD’S “AUTOEROTIC”

In recent months, Joe Swanberg has been making movies. A lot of movies. I don’t know how many, but I think his unreleased films could outnumber other filmmakers’ back catalogs. And, I think he’s thinking of interesting new ways to get them out. Hopefully there will be more news on that front soon, but in the meantime, here, via Indiewire, is the trailer (NSFW, by the way) for Autoerotic, his latest film premiering via IFC Midnight. The ensemble cast features the talented Kate Lyn Sheil (Green), and the film is co-directed by Adam Wingard. According to IFC Midnight:

Autoerotic follows four interconnected Chicago couples as they explore the boundaries of self-pleasure and sexual exploration. Through a unique blend of outrageous comedy and in-your-face sex, “Autoerotic” insightfully illuminates the private sexual lives of America’s urbanites.

I’m happy to see Wingard as part of this project. His underrated feature Pop Skull is a must view for fans of Gaspar Noe and other lovers of intense, hallucinatory cinematic experiences, and his forthcoming feature A Horrible Way to Die is an unnerving twist on the serial killer tale starring Amy Seimetz, who also appears in Autoerotic. According to iMBD, Wingard has three more features in various stages of production as well as an entry in the anthology The ABC’s of Death. (Oh yeah, and speaking of NSFW, he’s got a Tumblr photo blog; “I guess I fetishize everything” is its tagline).

Autoerotic will be released on demand this month and opens in theaters July 22.
