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...

Eric Ortiz's Favorite Movies Of 2019

Another year of movie-watching is over. 2019 was pretty special for me for several reasons. First of all, I was selected to be part of Fantastic Fest 2019 Screening Team, so I had to review over 60 film submissions. That...

Friday One Sheet: A PATIENT MAN

Kevin Ward's dramatic indie thriller, A Patient Man, is getting a direct download release next week, and a VOD bow in February, after a short stint on the festival circuit in 2019. By way of a press release, this lovely...

ScreenAnarchy's Top Ten Films of 2019

As 2019 comes to an end, ScreenAnarchy’s global team of critics and cineastes weighs in with our favourite cinematic offerings from the past 12 months, which saw Netflix lead the charge for cementing the legitimacy of the streaming platforms, while...

Friday One Sheet: The Best Posters of 2019

I hope you have enjoyed this column (almost) every Friday for 2019 as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Here is a cumulation of the best posters of the year. They are in no specific order, as they are...

Friday One Sheet: EYES WIDE SHUT @ 20

My favourite Christmas movie turned 20 this year. Stanley Kubrick's final film has taken almost as long to get its due in the popular culture, but I feel it has achieved consensus (more or less) for the final Kubrickian masterwork...

Friday One Sheet: GREED Is Good

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the tagline of the year, "The Devil Is In The Retail."  Michael Winterbottom's stylized take-down of the fashion retail industry (by way of planning and throwing a megalomaniac-vanity party) may have had some woes...

Now Streaming: DEADLY GAMES, Joy and Terror at Home

Directed by Rene Manzor, a thrilling delight pits a clever kid against a scary Santa Claus.

Pretty Packaging: Criterion's GODZILLA SHOWA ERA Boxset Is A Monster

We've said it before: Criterion doesn't often release "pimped" vanity sets, but when they do... ooooh boy. And perceptive fans of the distributor knew that something spectacular would be happening. Criterion was one of the first companies to use spine...

Friday One Sheet: PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is all Paint & Flames

Neon consistently put out exceptional, thoughtful, and laser-focused key art for their releases. Their beautifully minimal one-sheet for Cannes sensation, A Portrait Of A Lady On Fire, is one of their best. Designer Akiko Stehrenberger is fond of the polaroid...

Los Cabos 2019 Dispatch: Festival Galas THE IRISHMAN and JOJO RABBIT

The eighth edition of the Los Cabos International Film Festival kicked off with the Latin American premiere of Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster masterpiece The Irishman. At the opening gala, the legendary Robert De Niro himself presented the film, though his...

Pretty Packaging: Criterion's THE KOKER TRILOGY Is An Iranian Russian Doll

If we look at the Blu-ray distributing landscape, I think nobody will contest that Criterion is the most prestigious company in existence there. From 1984 onward the company has focused on quality, and, quoting Wikipedia: "Criterion is noted for helping...

Friday One Sheet: LINE OF DUTY Races The Clock

This Aaron Eckhart race against the clock thriller, Line of Duty (previously, it had a more interesting title, Live!) may not exactly be getting stellar reviews, and is being unceremoniously dumped into a few theatres and on streaming services this...

Friday One Sheet: LUZ THE FLOWER OF EVIL, A Colombian Tableaux

This gorgeous, if terrifying (perhaps maddening is a better word) look at family and religion in the high altitude wilderness of Colombia has a series of 'character' posters which play more like tableaux or scene setting evocations. They are in...

Friday One Sheet: TO KILL THE DRAGON Festival Quad

Here is an eye grabbing quad design for domestic horror, Matar al Dragón, from Argentina (and director Jimena Monteoliva, whose previous film, Clementina, was no stranger to good key art).  Houses and homes are often a theme in poster design, particular for...

Friday One Sheet: Morbido 2019 Flexes Its Tentacles

This is not the first time in these pages that we have featured key art from Morbido, Mexico City's iconic fantastic and horrific film festival. Over 12 editions, their posters have always been a treat for our ocular cavities. The...

Friday One Sheet: Robert Eggers' Cursed Animal Series Continues With THE LIGHTHOUSE

A24 recently put out a new poster for this loopy, horrific, sad, entertaining, difficult, oddly-aspect ratio'd, actors workshop of a period horror, The Lighthouse. The poster is a direct nod to Robert Eggers' previous period horror picture, The VVitch, which...
