Trailer: Graceland

The film I regret missing the most during last years Fantasia festival was Ron Morales’ Graceland, which premiered in the Contemporary Filipino Cinema the day I was on the train coming back to Toronto. Well, Drafthouse films has picked it up and cut a tense trailer for the film that has been drawing breathless comparisons to Akira Kurosawa’s High and Low. Not a film comparison one should toss about lightly. I’m not looking to see this even more, as the trailer confirms that the picture straddles the line between gritty and quite handsome.
