The first trailer for Slow West is visually stunning


Michael Fassbender and Ben Mendelsohn star in hilarious and thrilling western

A24 should be everybody's favorite movie distribution/production company at this point. With movies like Spring Breakers, The Bling Ring, Enemy, Under the Skin, The Rover, Locke, Obvious Child, A Most Violent Year and the upcoming Ex Machina and While We're Young, it's easy to forgive a few missteps late in 2014. Luckily, John Maclean's feature directorial debut, Slow West, seems to fit in with the best in the catalogue. 

It's already a festival hit, as it currently holds a perfect score on RottenTomatoes, albeit it's only based off of eight reviews. Immediately visually stunning, thanks to its cinematography and the beautiful locations, the stellar cast only adds to it with Michael Fassbender, Ben Mendelsohn, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Rory McCann and Brooke Williams. 

It's presented as a Shakespearian love-story, in a hard western classic, with elements of typical Chaplinian slapstick humor. Oh, it's also been compared to Quentin Tarantino, and it's easy to understand why. Sadly, we don't have a release date as of yet, but knowing A24, it's probably not too far out.
