    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.

Kyle Buchanan: I think the deal with a lot of white, male critics is there’s a very empirical way that they write that they write their movie reviews that always puzzled me. Movies are such subjective things. Back in the day, I used to be the film critic for The Advocate, and it was really striking to me when I would go into screening rooms and I was by far the youngest. They were filled with old white men. And when you watch a film like Black Snake Moan, that’s playing with a whole lot of gender and race issues, I was like, Are like 70-year-old white men like really the sole voices that I want to hear on this movie? It just didn’t feel right.

Jen Yamato I’ve been very pleasantly surprised to see the receptions Moonlight has gotten. But one of the films that I was disappointed to see not get more traction was American Honey. I distinctly remember sitting in a screening room full of mostly older white guys and thinking during the film, How are any of them going to relate to this movie?

“I was frustrated, a bit angry even. There should be no need for winning in the arts. Awards condition people into thinking that art is a competition, that good cinema is prize-winning … that a filmmaker must win an award or two to be considered finance-worthy. It enables the slow death of many and lack of support for most. My films do not ask to be liked. In fact, my films actively seek to be disliked. It seems that I have failed at this goal. What does it mean to be political in the time of Trump… in the country of Duterte? I dedicate the film to all the outsiders of the world: kids, midgets, freaks, paralytics, prostitutes, scoundrels. These are my people. I make outsider films that talk about the pain and joy of not belonging, of always being on the outside peering in.”
