We're not lost, just finding our way

Fresh on the heels of one of the best movie posters to come along in a long while, Apple has an HD trailer for Kelly Reichardt's Oregon Trail drama Meek's Cutoff. Given Reichardt's track record (Wendy and Lucy, also with Michelle Williams), this one's probably thin on plot and high on atmosphere, but that's o.k. The trailer strikes some ominous notes, with Bruce Greenwood's Meek leading the wagon train into the desert and a pit of uncertainty. It looks handsomely shot and seems to have more on its mind than your typical latter-day western (i.e. it's more Assassination of Jesse James, less Appaloosa). Count me in.
