Make the Moon Film Trailer
A Critical Review
by Akello Stone
Grief. We all do it in our own way. It can tear us down to the sheer emptiness of nothingness or enrage us into committing spiteful acts. We can explode or implode or land somewhere in between. This teaser/trailer proves that Alex Muñoz has a grand vision - to allow the audience to see, to hear, and to descend into an emotional abyss against an urban backdrop, a surreal tapestry of color and texture.
He ignites our imagination and offers us opportunity for constructing our own interpretation.Diontae Simpson (Jay/Jimmy) exquisitely expresses nonverbals to tell a raw and painfully familiar tale of human suffering and anguish. His walk through a delusional fantasy/nightmare of epic transmutations intensifies the pain of the loss of his twin brother and the burning lacerations of maternal rejection. His inner poetry is his greatest device for seeking resolution or perhaps finding emotional retribution. My curiosity about the outcome is huge!
