This writer is suffering a bit today from having endured three hours in a dentist’s chair to get some crowns put in, so instead of a heady and/or lengthy write-up, we instead turn to the magic of video. This trailer in particular has helped us get through the pain and Novocain numbness: Ben Shaprio’s documentary about photographer Gregory Crewdson, Brief Encounters. More than a decade in the making, it documents Crewdson’s film set-like process of capturing almost-surreal, haunting images of small town America. Knowing that the film will have its premiere in just a few days, launching with four screenings in Austin for SXSW (the first on March 10th at the Alamo Lamar) means that it’s that much close to starting a tour, which means it might come to Chicago so we can see it, which was the extra push we needed today to keep our sore head up. Here’s the film’s site and here’s the trailer, which is guaranteed to have you hooked within seconds:
