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.
