Trying really fucking hard to not be part of the problem.
Opening SXSW Film will be 21 (starring Jim Sturgess, Kate Bosworth, and Kevin Spacey), which mixes gambling, sex, and math genius -- so a sure hit. The trailer is here. [via]
The trailer came of as mostly feh to me. My bet is that they took an interesting - and true! - story, dropped the nerdy parts that are too hard for Americans to worry their heads with, munged it up with some psuedoscience bullshit, added a little sex and crapped out something that will ultimately be completely dissatisfying to everyone. I know that Math is Hard and all but this just feels like it's going to be a crappy movie version of that crappy TV show Numb3rs. Also, I suck at math and this kinda bullshit pisses me off.
