The chatter among the indie film bloggers this weekend has surrounded a new release called After Last Season. This feature was released on Friday in four cities: Lancaster (California), North Aurora (Illinois), Rochester (New York), and Austin (Really???? You guys better go see it!). The film’s synopsis: “The end of another season has brought more than the usual change in temperature to the residents of a city. As they go through some tragic events, the residents, and especially a group of medical students, must reevaluate their lives and face new questions.” Seems harmless, right? Well, here’s the trailer:
Oh. My. God. Here is the film’s official Web site. A bunch of us now wanna see the film, and several bloggers are weighing in with a mixture of excitement and confusion.
Michael Tully: “If anyone is attending these screenings, please comment here to confirm or deny if this is indeed a masterful inside joke or if that cardboard M.R.I. machine is presented with genuine sincerity.”
Jason Guerrasio: “You may recall Scott [Macaulay]’s post in late March where he showed the trailer for a bizarre film called After Last Season which included an MRI machine that looked like it was made out of cardboard and perplexing lines like ‘They’ve got printers in the basement you can use.’ Since then the debate has raged if this is a real movie. Well, the time has come.” Macaulay also has an interview with film’s lead actor.
And, now, we wait.
