Great selection Andrew and mostly stuff I've never laid eyes on before. I especially like La Rabia, Hadewijch, La Belle Personne (which has caught my eye in the past) and The Wonderful World of Laundry. That Avida poster is quite something too!

ryan werner

this is great.

I know you are plugging posters that are from films that you were at least aware of, here is one that gets a lot of nods for a film you have probably havent heard about.

Ekkehard Knoerer

Thanks - most of those were unknown to me. And, yes, Rudolf Thome should be much better known in the States, and in the rest of the world, Germany actually included.(And a short correction: Hans-Christian Schmid's second film in 2009 was "Storm" - "Das Vaterspiel" is a film by Austrian director Michael Glawogger, and, by the way, a quite fascinating one.)

Ekkerhard --

How embarrassing that I confused the two directors.

Yes, Das Vaterspiel was one of my favorites at this year's Berlinale.

A psychoanalyst's playground dear boy.

Glenn Kenny

A real feast for the eyes, there, my friend. And, hey, I'll look at that screener for "Play" if you're not gonna get to it for a while. Let's talk after the new year.

To answer your question as to whether the "American Crime" poster is paying homage to, or ripping off, that of "In Cold Blood:" Absolutely. Graphic designers, particularly those working in the realm of posters, are obsessive historians and referencers. Except the Poles of the '50s and '60s, of course. And in their case they kind of had no choice.

Darn, that Glenn Kenny guy beat me to Ploy. Between this, and the fact that only the martial arts and horror films get released with English subtitles, I might have to learn Thai to keep up with Pen-Ek, Nomzee and some others.

Some of the other films you have recommended are slowly making their way up my Netflix queue.

Jeff Finley

Wow great stuff Andrew, I love what was done with the La Rabia poster. Love the colors on the DeadGirl one too, it's so bold and striking w/o being sexually overt. The Kinski one is ridiculous, just like he is.

I think I might just post a fav list on my blog just to remember some of these. Great finds and thanks for digging them up!

Andrew,

I’m soliciting bloggers’ favorites (of their own posts) for my year-end round-up at The Dancing Image. Here’s the explanation (with a bit of a mea culpa):

Feel free to leave your own selection there – links to all submissions will be posted around the 30th, but I’ll certainly be taking them after that too.

Thanks & happy new year!

P.S. Re: posters - Wow!

I'd have to say that my favourite is the American Crime poster - Simple but effectively atmospheric :)
I know this is more well-known than the ones you listed, but I absolutely love this poster: http://www.ioncinema.com/old/images/user/news_3332_user_17903.jpg

This is also one of my favourites: http://mnfilmtv.org/mndialog/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/saddestmusic.jpg

As is this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Gut6-1uN-X0/SeIbjzuhxLI/AAAAAAAABdc/Hievo5Y0csY/s400/La+Haine+Poster.gif

I might add that I'm not particularly objective for the first and last, as I'd probably like any poster with Vincent Cassel on it!
