Baskin – Trailer

Can Evrenol’s Baskin premiered at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) for some serious acclaim, though looking at the trailer–which I understand not only can’t but more than likely doesn’t necessary represent the movie–it feels particularly chaotic, and not in a good way.

Evrenol’s a Turkish director, so the movie probably represents sensibilities that may not necessarily be the same as the average American’s, but I am just not feeling this trailer.

In some ways it reminds me of Indian (as in the country) movies that turn up on Netflix.  I am sometimes curious, but the tendency for Indian movies to throw in dancing and singing at odd moments never particularly worked for me.
