Friday One Sheet: FINGERS

Eschewing the usual 'Indie Yellow,' the key art for Juan Ortiz's crime comedy, Fingers, comes as a hand-drawn (ahem, sorry) collage on a palm with partially and fully severed digits, framed in water-stained pink. Artist and designer Emily J. Moore,...


Plus: 'Cheap Thrills,' 'Free Solo' and 'Shoplifters' arrive.

Pretty Packaging: PIGTAILS Packs A Punch

Shorts. What to do with them? Many of them are magnificent, yet the current market hasn't figured out how to make them commercial blockbusters yet. You get to see great ones at each festival, but good luck finding them afterwards,...

Friday One Sheet: DIVINE LOVE and Neon Iconography

This column's obsession with neon continues with the key art for Brazilian drama and Sundance entry, Divino Amor. The design feels like those ubiquitous paperback novels of the 1980s, dealing more in iconography than 'description.' Even the tagline here, "True...

Also: 'Chungking Express' on the new Criterion Channel.

Pretty Packaging: COWBOY BEBOP Gets An Ultimate Edition

Glasgow-based distributor Anime Limited has built a reputation for daring Blu-ray releases, be it films and series which aren't that well-known, or outrageous editions for fan-favorites. As a collector, the company is definitely worth keeping an eye on, especially whenever...

Friday One Sheet: HIGH LIFE Essays Biology in Space

Thus far, 2019 has been the year of Green. While two weeks hardly make a trend, it cannot be understated how underused green is in movie key art. Here is the poster for Claire Denis's 'sex-ain't-sexy' space drama, High Life,...

Friday One Sheet: TRANSIT

Part near-future science fiction, and (seemingly) a hybrid remake of both Casablanca and The Passenger, Christian Petzold's Transit is a strange beast of a film. The Boland Design Co. offers a gorgeous, green tinted piece of key art that emphases...

Eric Ortiz's Favorite Movies Of 2018

After watching 133 new releases over the past 12 months, it’s certainly time to chime in, for what it’s worth, with my list of personal favorites. I live in Mexico City, therefore several 2017 titles are here. On the other...

Friday One Sheet: HOTEL MUMBAI

As fitting for a movie with the word HOTEL in the title, the most recent poster for Hotel Mumbai features the sumptuous interior design of one of the rooms. Because the film is about the 2008 terror attacks on the...

Pretty Packaging: Criterion's INGMAR BERGMAN'S CINEMA Astonishes

(Holy cow, when Criterion cracks its knuckles in earnest, you get magic...) I don't know whether to feel merry or sorry for those collectors who have a taste for Ingmar Bergman. Imagine picking up all of Criterion's Blu-ray releases of...
