Friday One Sheet: TRIANGLE OF SADNESS

This poster, for Palme d'Or winning Triangle of Sadness, will turn some heads, although maybe in disgust. Projectile vomit is a way to grab attention. The highly-stylized 'liquid gold' look of it, which I am sure is intentional, is perhaps...

Pretty Packaging: DUNE (The Lynch One) Gets An Extra Spicy Edition

Ard's Dozen Of Musings About 2021

This year I'm breaking my own record for reporting about LAST year: I don't think I've ever been quite this late. Ouch. If I continue like this, it'll become so bad that I will have to promise that next year,...
