TRAILER WATCH: BEN WHEATLEY’S “SIGHTSEERS”
Over the past few years, Ben Wheatley has emerged as a distinctive and deliciously dark voice in British cinema, with his first two features, Down Terrace and Kill List, rightly getting excellent reviews. His third film, Sightseers, premiered at Cannes in May, where it was picked up for U.S. distribution by IFC Films, and I’m really looking forward to checking it out. I’m sadly not attending Toronto next month, where Sightseers will play, but look forward to hear the word on it from those attending. For now, this NSFW-ish trailer — via The Guardian‘s website — will have to sate my appetite.
