Movie Trailer for “Restless City” by Andrew Dosunmu

Movie Trailer for "Restless City" by Andrew Dosunmu | June's Journal

It moved viewers at the 2011 Sundance Festival.  Then it opened in theatres throughout New York City and Lost Angelos, CA, on April 27, 2012, released by AFFRM (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement).  Now it can be viewed in other cities due to demand.  Such as in Denver at Denver Film Center! Catch it at 12p, 2:15p, 4:45p, 7:20p, 9:30!

The movie, Restless City, directed by Andrew Dosunmu, is a tale of a male trying to stay live in New York City.  He has a passion for music and he also develops a love interest.


I was disappointed to come across a link for this movie to a place where the entire movie can be viewed right online (which I will not repost or link to).  Surely this decreases interest in going to the theatre to see it, particularly an independent film, when it’s available to watch right online.  Doesn’t seem right. The other movies on the same site that were up had been released for years.  Restless City seemed to be the only movie being featured that had just recently been released to theaters.

Personally, I’m not a fan of the trailer for this movie.  It doesn’t entice me to see it.  However, if it comes to Philly I would see it if nothing else but to support the movement.  And from the written reviews, it’s a great film.  Just not a great trailer.  A trailer should motivate a person to want to see the movie.
