Glance at David Lowery’s IMDB page and one will see that the man has been involved in quite a few projects with a wide variety of jobs. Writer, director, editor, actor, cinematographer, producer, camera and electrical, and sound department – if his resume is any indication, the guy seems to be interested in every aspect of the process of filmmaking.
I’m not familiar with any of his previous work, but if the trailer for his latest feature-length film, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, is a sign of his usual quality, well then, I have some homework.
In the trailer for Lowery’s film, we see an escaped convict (played by the nearly always brilliant Casey Affleck) making his way across rural Texas in order to reunite with his wife (Rooney Mara) and child, all the while be pursued by the police. If those two actors aren’t enough to convince you, the rest of the cast includes a nearly unrecognizable Ben Foster along with Keith Carradine and Rami Malek.
Really, Casey Affleck being attached is probably all you need to know in order to be interested, but check out the trailer. It looks beautiful. It looks brutal. It looks stellar.
