Friday One Sheet: TIGERTAIL

This warmly toned design for Alan Yang's Netflix debut, Tigertail features lots of negative space and sets a wonderful mood of the freedom of childhood.  It is very similar BLT's teaser design of Kelly Reichardt's First Cow; both sans credit block...

Friday One Sheet: (Minimalist) MULAN

I personally find the 'live action reboot' strip-mining of Disney's back-catalog to be one of the more culturally abhorrent things in the 21st century. That being said, Ignition Creative's key art campaign for the forthcoming Mulan has been rather delightful. This...

Friday One Sheet: NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS

With a healthy respect for negative space, youthful skin and earth tones, the key art for Sundance winner, Never Rarely Sometimes Always, succeeds in its own minimalism. There is not even any punctuation in the title. Gazing directly at the...

Friday One Sheet: WENDY in Motion

Friday One Sheet: DISAPPEARANCE AT CLIFTON HILL

Like many things when capturing attention, it is all about the eyes. The key art for this Canadian neo-noir re-imagines the tacky urban theme park slash tourist trap, the eponymous Clifton Hill, that is barnacled to Niagara Falls, as a...

Ard's Dozen Of Musings About 2019

Last year I started my overview of 2018 with lamenting about how few films I had seen. The sad truth is: in 2019 I saw even significantly less. I strive for at least 150 films each year, yet in 2019...
