Despite my absolutely disdain of Quentin Tarantino, I’ve got to admit that this is a beautiful poster for his new film Django Unchained. While most posters now are but cliched glyphs, it wasn’t always so. Some of the great posters can be recalled years later: think Jaws, Vertigo, and Chinatown. A couple of modern examples would be There Will Be Blood and The Girlfriend Experience (which I wrote about here).
I love its simplicity, its menace, and I love how the characters below are -forgive me- linked together with the chain above them. Beautiful stuff.
