    Why Tarsem Singh is 'really angry' about Mirror Mirror's trailers | Blastr

    Immortals director Tarsem Singh—who's well known for his visual style (also see The Cell and The Fall)—is really angry about all those Mirror Mirror trailers. Really, really angry. And here's why.

    "I'm really angry at the trailers," the director told Digital Spy. "I'm a director, I guess, so I always get pissed at them! The movie looks fantastic and the trailers look so hammily off.

    "The posters are okay, they're still neutral, but we're trying to get the film out there so people don't judge it by the trailer."

    We have to agree with Singh here, since from the trailers we've seen so far, Mirror Mirror—which stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Lily Collins as Snow White—appears far more farcical and comical (Singh admits his film is more geared for family viewing) than the other film it's really in competition with—the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman—which looks, let's face it, kinda awesomer.

    Singh also admits that he doesn't have any real control over how the trailers are cut: "I backed away from it a bit. I fought that fight on Immortals and I found that I was taking my eye off the movie. I said I'll fight for the movie, but marketing can fight for how you want to sell it."
    I'd be pissed too. It looks like canned ass.

    The search posts/threads function isn't %100 but once you get used to it it can be very helpful.

    *Mirror, Mirror* (paging Leo Strauss)

    Not often does Hollywood put out movies romanticizing tyrannicide and the assassination of foreign leaders of friendly countries, in this case India. Julia Roberts is the wicked Queen, witch, and false pretender, but actually the stand-in for Indira Gandhi, with an uncanny resemblance of look and dress in the final scene (I wonder if anyone told her?). This movie presents a romanticized and idealized version of how her assassination should have proceeded and should have been processed, namely in a triumphal manner with no reprisals but rather celebration and joyous union and love. As the plot proceeds, you will find all sorts of markers of Sikh theology, including numerous references to daggers, hair, mirrors, water, immersions, submersions, bodily penetrations, transformations, the temple at Amritsar, dwarves who enlarge themselves, and the notion of woman as princess, among many others; director Tarsem Singh knows this material better than I do (read up on Sikh theology before you go, if you haven’t already). The silly critics complained that the plot didn’t make sense, but from the half dozen or so reviews I read they didn’t even begin to understand the movie.

    Without wishing to take sides on either the politics or the religion, I found this a daring and remarkable film. The sad thing is that no one is paying attention.
    Interesting.
