"You're what's wrong with me!"

The US trailer for Andrea Arnold's truly astonishing Fish Tank has landed and it is a very strange creature indeed. Marketing this movie as an inspiring "coming of age" tale will not help it reach outside of the ever shrinking arthouse ghetto. It's a shame that barely anybody will see this, but that's just the way it is. There's also a newly released poster to the left there for you to enjoy.

Note to any readers who haven't seen the film yet, the trailer is presented in widescreen, but in actual fact the film is in the old school TV aspect ratio to represent the POV of the characters and how they see their world (or some such, according to Arnold).

Just watching that makes me recall how searing and potent it was and how excellent Katie Jarvis was and what a year Michael Fassbender had! Speaking of Fassbender...

Yes, I think we can all agree that that is an appropriate way to sell your bleakish British council estate movie.
