Here’s an odd little bit of footage.
Slowly making its way to screens completely under the radar, a new trailer has arrived for Florian Frerich’s upcoming film Alex. What’s so special about this rarely discussed indie? Well, it’s pedigree is pretty intriguing.
Starring the son of Klaus Kinski, Nikolai Kinski, the film follows the story of a man named Frederick, who after coming across a partial copy of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, joins an ever growing movement of youths inspired by the film, only to become the born again Alex. A trailer has hit for the film, and it’s oddly intriguing.
Personally, I find the entire idea of this film a tad odd, but it’s none the less interesting. I think the premise itself sounds like something that could make a solid, possibly great, meta-film, but being unfamiliar with Frerich’s work, I have low expectations. The trailer is definitely a tad too gruesome for work conditions, but for those interested, give this thing a look. The film arrives in January.
