Coppola’s black-and-white drama starring Vincent Gallo, “Tetro,” has a trailer up. It shows the extreme limits online video has with blacks — muddy and narrow.
IMDb has this bit of trivia:
Francis Ford Coppola decided to shoot this film the same way he shot Rumble Fish (1983): in black-and-white, with occasional bursts of colour, since both films held “a spiritual connection” with each other (both are dramas about relationships, primarily that of brotherhood).
To attain the film’s visual style, director Francis Ford Coppola and cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr. watched La notte (1961), Baby Doll (1956) and On the Waterfront (1954); films Coppola had admired during his student years.
