quietearth [Celluloid 08.14.09] movie trailer news comedy drama

While ostensibly this has low production values, it features one of my personal favorites, Adam Goldberg, who plays an artist who makes nonsense, and is directed by Jonathan Parker who did the excellent film Bartelby. So if you follow that line, we clearly end up with comedy. We've been keeping an eye on it for awhile and even posted a clip back in April.

Set in the artsy Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, (Untitled) tells the story of Adrian Jacobs (Goldberg), a difficult composer of equally difficult music whose sparsely attended performances involve musicians breaking glass and kicking metal buckets. In contrast, Adam’s brother, Josh (Bailey), is a commercially successful painter of vapid canvasses that corporate clients snap up by the dozen. But, Adrian’s luck appears set to change when Josh brings the stunning Madeleine (Shelton) to one of his concerts. Not only does she embrace his work and ask him to perform at her gallery, she invites him into her bed. As the two embark on a fiery affair, Adrian is introduced to a world of pretentious art collectors, dueling gallerists and eccentric artists, including Ray Barko (Vinnie Jones), whose bizarre creations include chandeliers of stuffed animals and dead cows draped with jewelry.

When Josh discovers Adrian and Madeleine’s relationship and Madeleine refuses to exhibit Josh’s paintings—even though the money they bring in is what keeps the gallery afloat—the stage is set for a showdown as comedic and discordant as Adrian’s music.
