TOP 10 OF 2010: #4



After watching Yorgos Lanthimos' Greek film DOGTOOTH a few nights ago, I had to rapidly reshuffle my top ten list admist this project (EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP was sadly the casualty in this case), and I got great pleasure in making something as strange and fucked up as possible for this strange, fucked up movie that hardly anyone reading this blog has had the chance to see yet. DOGTOOTH has traveled the festival circuit for the past 2 years, released on a limited scale here in the states this year, and as for what the film is about and how this poster relates to it, I'll let this speak for itself and hopefully entice some readers to seek out this funny and disturbing movie. But it was fun playing around with this compositional style and making something totally abstract, something I'd like to do a lot more of.

Three more to go, and I should add that larger versions of each poster can be found on my Flickr page in all their flawed hi-res glory.

I was fortunate to see Dogtooth at a film festival in Birmingham, Alabama. It was screened in the city's movie palace: huge screen, big crowd. Great experience, but the movie was most definitely unnerving, and the crowd seemed to be polarized by it (those who thought it was brilliant vs. those who were lost after the first 15-20 minutes and likely walked out). I'm surprised there's no cat in your poster, Sam...

There are way too many great images to include in a poster for this movie, so I just went off-the-cuff and assembled the first thing that came to mind. Maybe I've wore out my welcome with cat posters anyway. :)

This was probably one of my favorites of the year, too.
