Burning Man TrailerJonathan Teplitzky‘s Burning Man (2011) movie trailer stars Matthew GoodeBojana Novakovic, Rachel Griffiths, Essie Davies, and Kerry Fox. Burning Man‘s plot synopsis: “When we meet Tom (Matthew Goode), it’s clear that he’s a good man, but behaving badly. He’s the principal chef at a casually chic restaurant overlooking Bondi Beach (where he doesn’t respond well to criticism from the clientele); a devoted, if mercurial, father to eight-year-old Oscar (Jack Heanly); and a man more attractive to women (lots of them) than he is to himself. Whatever is going on with Tom, his actions seem to be tolerated by those around him. But every­thing comes to a head when he prepares a birthday party for his son at a beachside park. His anger erupts and he finds himself in police custody — not much of a birthday for Oscar. As Tom descends into darkness, gem-like fragments of the story behind his current state of mind start to emerge. With the passion of his past and the emotional turbulence of his present beginning to merge, he recognizes that the women in his life, and Oscar, are all playing a part in pull­ing him back together.”

Great visuals in this movie trailer. If the story matches it, the film might be up there with Sophia Coppola dramas.

On Burning Man‘s reception so far:

While people seem to generally agree that Teplitzky’s got an eye for striking visuals, there’s less consensus on whether the film on the whole is effective. Variety seemed especially sour on the movie, deriding it as “a feature-length montage posing as a serious drama.”

More about Burning Man:

The story is apparently semi-autobiographical, which may translate to a more personal film than most.
