2001 Internet Movie Poster Awards - Best Poster Nominees
Bread and Roses
Little person takes on the big guys in California. You don't need to already
know the plot of Ken Loach's first American film to be able to tell that
much from the poster. So nice to see a poster that doesn't require a tag
line that explains the whole plot to you. Posters should be all about image,
and this one is a perfect example.
In the Bedroom
A perfect example of why sometimes simple is best. A neighborhood of houses
in the dead of night. Everything is dark and quiet except for one house.
The light is on. Something is up. What could it be? What's going on in
The picture within a picture within a picture design is a perfect way of
relating the confusion of the film's main character, a man who can no longer
make new memories and must constantly take photographs and make notes to
try and solve the last true memory he does have: the death of his wife.
Certainly the best of the many posters released for this film. As is often
the case, one of the "teasers" is far more imaginative then the final official
posters plastered with the stars' faces. This poster perfectly captures
the mood of the event itself, even if it doesn't capture the silliness
of the movie itself.
Just because your movie is a "psycho on the loose" slasher film doesn't
mean you can't come up with an imaginative poster design.
