StatisticalOutlier May 17, 2022 Share May 17, 2022 I still don't know how to embed trailers, but this website has a link to the trailer, and also a scene from the movie. https://www.unitedartistsreleasing.com/on-the-count-of-three/home/ It's getting very limited theatrical release, but I gather it's doing all the streaming stuff. My question: Where did Jerrod Carmichael learn to direct a movie? This thing is solid, especially considering the tightrope act that directing a movie about two guys who are planning a double suicide must be. There was a pervasive uneasiness, but at the same time an ease and chemistry between the two characters that made you believe they'd known each other forever. And a layer of geniality over all of it. I just loved both of them, and Christopher Abbott broke my heart while also making me laugh out loud. I really want to be friends with the two of them, just hanging out, which makes their misery that much sadder. Obviously it's not a movie for everyone, and I had qualms, but decided to trust it, and am glad I did. Also, the film was shot in 35mm, and looks lovely. And the soundtrack is spot on, including the diegetic use of "Give me back that filet-o-fish, give me that fish" in a very unexpected way. Link to comment
