This teaser trailer for Assassination Nation, a thriller from Sam Levinson, writer/director of HBO’s Wizard of Lies, is genius.
The film features a line-up of important young artists, 2 of which are Hari Nef, one of the best parts of Transparent Season 2, and Suki Waterhous the kickass star of the gloriously bizarre postapocalyptic feminist film The Bad Batch.
Levinson’s film appears to be doing wild and important things: it’s taking the trope of American suburbia gone haywire and putting it in the hands of transgender and feminist badasses. And, just the very style and form of the trailer is a piece of pure anarchy.
I don’t even really care if the movie sucks. This trailer is anarchy and I’m here for all of it.
