    I love the way it is shot. Every scence in this trailer looks like it could be from an early 30s or 40s movie. Just simple sets. Black and white picture. Lots of close up reaction shots. It looks like the director mostly specializes in art, costume, and production design and it seems like there certainly is a lot of care given there.

    I'll be very surprised if Dafoe's and Pattinson's characters aren't the same person. Looks like it'll be a good one, though!

      That's definitely a strong possibility, but alternatively I got a bit of a Waiting for Godot vibe from the trailer, albeit with a much more serious+horror tone to it... and so assumed it might be similar to that, with the two characters trapped in a weird sort of forgetful, timeless purgatory together. Either way I am really looking forward to seeing it!

        Indeed. Might just be my brain anticipating a kind of trope-y twist!
