FIRST TRAILER FOR LAV DIAZ'S THE WOMAN WHO LEFT


It's one of my biggest disappointments that the 2016 London Film Festival lineup includes neither of Lav Diaz's two films this year: his Berlin Film Festival award-winning A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery and his Venice Film Festival competitor The Woman Who Left. Seriously, I'd trade you my Eugene Green, my Cristian Mungiu, my Bertrand Tavernier and my Maren Ade for just one of them! Here's the first trailer for the latter, The Woman Who Left, which also screens in the Toronto International Film Festival this month. Early reviews are excellent, and the trailer is predictably promising. The guy sure does a lot, and does very little wrong!
