Spirit trailer: Is coherence overrated?

by Matthew Price Published: September 29, 2008

Here’s a link to the latest trailer for “The Spirit,” directed by Frank Miller.  It made my computer crash twice today (not at that link), so, view at your own risk? Maybe my computer was just confused.

This is Will Eisner through an incredibly heavy filter of Frank Miller; that trailer to me felt even more like “Sin City” than the previous, just with goofy humor running through it.

“The Spirit” certainly has folks talking, and, I’m obviously going to see it – I just don’t know what to think of it, yet.  I don’t think it’s the movie that Eisner would have made, and I don’t think it replaces reading the comics — I mean, does anybody get a sense of Gerhard Schnobble out of this thing at all? That’s more what “The Spirit” is, to me.

Thoughts? Where is everybody on this one?
