{Cold Souls}


I mentioned this Charlie Kaufman-esque written film awhile back, but now there is a viral site for the Soul Storage Company, which is featured in the film!

Apparently the Soul Storage Company gives you the ability to add your own soul to their database and explore details about the company as if it actually exists. They've even taken out real ads in New York's Village Voice newspaper. They also don't hide the fact that Paul Giamatti is a part of it, as he's featured at the bottom of the main page under the "What Our Clients Are Saying" section

About the film...

In this dark comedy Paul Giamatti (playing himself) decides to lighten his load by having his soul extracted and put on ice. When he decides a soul-less existence isn't for him a mishap leads to his essence being shipped to Russia, where he must track it down. Parts of this film remind me of Being John Malkovich and others of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Cold Souls also stars: Emily Watson, David Strathairn, Dina Korzun, and Lauren Ambrose. Look for it in limited release on August 7th.
