Film promotional website review

The Ghost Writer is a psychological thriller movie directed by one of my favorite director, Roman Polanski. The story is about a recently hired journalist whose task was to write a memoir about a politician. During his stay, he discovers disturbing secrets from the politician. Driven by curiosity, the journalist started to investigate for more. However, his investigation does not go unnoticed.

The cool things about this websites are:
Interface design:
- The centred layout, it gives a theatrical feel
- Trailer at the start of the page
- Nice animations when changing page
- The color for the background is different at each page
- Simple links with underline rollover is nice
- Good use of space for the interface without covering the background images

Look and feel:
- Subtle texture adds a little uneasy feeling, but since it's a mystery movie it is justified
- Black and white colors gives a sophisticated feeling
- Big images on the background piqued some curiosity to the viewers

- Skippable trailer is always good thing
- Not much to click on except the links, user should be able to find everything

The bad things about this websites are:
- Entirely dependent on flash, those who don't have won't be able to view
