While we wait for David Ehrlich’s annual compliation video of his best films of 2019 (which are still the high water mark for this kind of thing – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012), Sleepy Skunk has put together a pretty great mashup of some of the trailers from the year.
I’ve probably seen maybe a quarter of the films in this video, and of the one’s I’ve seen, not all of them were particularly great (I wasn’t, for example, a fan of Midsommar. In fact, I think Ari Aster might be a complete charlatan), but in the context of this mashup, they all looked amazing. Which made me think maybe Errol Morris was right when he said
I believe that there are no good movies, no good books, no good music compositions just great scenes, great passages, great moments.
(Except for Mad Max: Fury Road. That is a perfect movie.)
