Cold Souls Trailer

June 19, 2009

Paul Giamatti plays an actor who needs a little help playing a part, so he enlists the services of a soul extraction company in Cold Souls. It's hard to tell exactly what a movie will be like just from the trailer, but I'll hazard a guess: It looks like a rip-off of Charlie Kaufman's Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The look, the music, the concept are all extremely Kaufmanesque. Which isn't to say this won't be an excellent movie. This is great terrain for Giamatti's knack for neurosis to play in. But somewhere Charlie Kaufman is shaking his fists and having a panic attack over this. Take a look after the jump.
