    Not bad. Not quite as creative as some of Moss’s other works (Studio Ghibli, Star Wars) but some work quite nicely. I think your picks are pretty spot-on too.

    Overall though, I think they work much better as the single poster than as individual pieces.

    I’d happily view the full poster, but that appears to not be possible. I guess I’ll have to hope I’m lucky enough to see it in person plastered somewhere around LA. Too bad the full poster isn’t available for viewing, here or at any of the links. No fucking way in hell I’m going to click through 85 times for every individual fucking movie (and I’m guessing a new ad with a 10 second hold every time I try to advance) at the official oscar.go website. Blech.

“Film festivals, for those who don’t know, are not exactly the glitzy red carpet affairs you see on TV. Those do happen, but they’re a tiny part of the festival. The main part of any film festival are the thousands of people with festival passes hanging on lanyards beneath their anoraks, carrying brochures for movies you have never and will never hear of, desperately scrabbling to sell whatever movie it is to buyers from all over the world. Every hotel bar, every cafe, every restaurant is filled to the brim with these people, talking loudly about non-existent deals. The Brits are the worst because most of the British film industry, with a few honourable exceptions, are scam artists and chancers who move around from company to company failing to get anything good made and trying to cast Danny Dyer in anything that moves. I’m seeing guys here who I first met twenty years ago and who are still wearing the same clothes, doing the same job (albeit for a different company) and spinning the same line of bullshit about how THIS movie has Al Pacino or Meryl Streep or George Clooney attached and, whilst that last one didn’t work out, THIS ONE is going to be HUGE. As the day goes on, they start drinking and it all gets ugly and, well, that’s why I’m the guy walking through the Tiergarten with a camera taking pictures of frozen lakes and pretending this isn’t happening.

“The difference between poetry and prose, and why if you’re not acculturated to poetry, you might resist it: that page is frightening. Why is it not filled? The two categories of people who don’t feel that way are children and prisoners. So many prison poets; they see that gap and experience it differently. I’m for the gap!”
~ Poet Eileen Myles
