This movie trailer supercut of "one man" over and over again is hypnotic in a totally crappy way.
As UpWorthy's Joseph Lamour says, "This montage of movie trailers may seem like just another funny supercut, but to me it plays like a highlight reel for what's wrong with American cinema."
And while a trailer isn't a looking glass into the heart and soul of a movie, it might be the only thing that most people ever see, and the fact that it's one man, one man, one man is disheartening. Oh wait! There goes a woman. In a rom com, but still — yay! One woman! Let's all drink cosmos and talk about men to celebrate.
And here's some fun facts to keep in mind:
- Only two percent of 2012's top films were shot by women cinematographers. (In fact, the top 250 grossing films in the U.S. in 2012, women comprise 18% of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors.)
- Girls missing from children's media.
- There's Only 1 Female Film Director For Every 15.24 Male Ones
- And here's some more background on the dominance of Hollywood peen.
It goes on and on and on and on...
