VOTD: Trailer for Mike Leigh’s ‘Naked’
A lot of times movie studios will make deceptive or misleading trailers. These are trailers that sell the film as something that it is not. Look at how The Break Up was advertised as a romantic comedy when the title of the film is accurate, it is a painful and realistic look at a break up. Remember how Warner Bros sold Watchmen as a straightforward action film? However the trailer for Mike Leigh’s Naked takes the cake as the most misleading trailer ever made. I found the trailer on the Criterion DVD so it may not be the one used in theatres. However the trailer makes it look like a charming comedy of manners when it is really the opposite. The film might be a comedy, sort of, but it is one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen.
