The Trailer Project with Alexander Miller #44: Andrzej Zulawski’s On the Silver Globe (1988)
The Polish government tried to shut it down but Żuławski’s maverick vision prevails. Even in its truncated form On the Silver Globe is a visionary spectacle.
The Trailer Project is devoted to the moving image, the trailers that promote the movies we all know and love and some other random movies that you might not know or care about. Here we also like to feature essay shorts, and music inspired videos using varied film footage. This week’s movie is Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
