The source of a recent Tribeca Film Festival-issued case of cinematic blue balls, Woody Allen’s Whatever Works is a must-see for one obvious reason comprised of two first names: Larry David. Pairing the naturalistic neurosis and constant saying-of-wrong-things of Curb Your Enthusiasm with Allen’s own brand of neurosis and lo-fi filmmaking seems like a match made in socially-awkward heaven. Plus, it’s David’s first starring role in a feature film, which hopefully is the beginning of a frequently-updated side career.
The trailer for Whatever Works has arrived, and, while not as hilarious as expected, it provides more than enough David one-liners to keep me excited. Check it (beyond the jump):
(About that above-mentioned Tribeca cocktease……Whatever Works was advertised as the fest’s opener, a big event since it was a Woody Allen film debuting in his native New York City, but tickets never went on sale to the general public, and I’m not yet cool enough to get the cherished VIP Pass. Womp to the womp.)
