Unknown Triptych

A section of the trailer for the 2011 Jaume Collet-Serra film Unknown, starring Liam Neeson. An enjoyably ludicrous thriller, with the style and energy of a ‘50s B-noir.

First: the image - a car suspended in midair - is revealed to be contained within the physical film itself. Then that filmic image is broken via digital manipulation.

Second: the image moves without moving; warping itself within space, color, sound, and time.

Third: the image reveals itself as an object, but refuses to remain still. Credits for the feature film scroll past as the film’s title reveals itself.
