Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

In pursuit of adventure and escape the boys head out on one last night together to an illegal rave before parting ways indefinitely.

This is an under-the-radar, balls-to-the-wall, comedy with a bit of drama that looks to mesh heartache with the thrill of being young, dumb, and too stupid to care about anything important. The last dalliance with disregard for anyone else but your friends. Brilliant.
