Trailer For Nacho Vigalondo's OPEN WINDOWS Traps Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood In Tech-Nightmare
I suppose it was inevitable that some confident, ambitious director would eventually make a movie set entirely in different windows of a computer screen. Fortunately, first one to the punch is the endlessly innovative Nacho Vigalondo, and, as anyone familiar with his work (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial) would hope, it looks like a lot of fun in its own ridiculous way. 

The plot involves Elijah Wood as an obsessed fan of a famous actress (Sasha Grey) who gets more intertwined with her than he ever dreamed when a villain starts threatening to kill her on webcam if Wood doesn't comply with his orders. My first impression is that it looks equal parts tense and silly in a Speed or Phone Booth type of way -- but check the trailer below and judge for yourself!

I'm intrigued. Nacho is super creative, can't wait to watch!

I LOVE Timecrimes, but about this, I have concerns...

Zaike AireySeptember 13, 2013 3:06 PM

this looks phenomenally stupid, but I have faith in Nacho

Brian ClarkSeptember 13, 2013 3:24 PM

It does. But I'm hoping it will be phenomenally stupid in the best way.

This looks interesting and I love the team behind this (Elijah Wood, Nacho Vigalondo and Sasha Grey, who is actually a pretty good actress, just watch The Girlfriend Experience) so I have to watch it.

ELijah Woods hacks an open Windows to see Sasha Grey's Apples

I like Vigalondo's Timecrimes a lot;
I love Sasha Grey;
I think Woods is a decent actor (nothing great, he can do just 2 expressions, the "good guy" and the "scared", but they are both fine);

So i think i will see this when it comes out

Indeed, phenomenally stupid is far, far more entertaining than just plain stupid. And who doesn't love that big 'W' made up of open windows above the city?

Seriously? Anyone who would take this idea seriously isn't to be taken seriously. What a rubbish idea for a flick!

Yeah, but it could work, though........Grey seems to be doing her finest dramatic performances to date(yeah, she probably did some acting in Slut Stories: Sasha Grey) even though the storyline........could be less than stellar.

Either way, it does look entertaining, the kind of voyeuristic stuff that Brian De Palma makes........could work.
Thanks Mr Clark.
