Movie Posters of the Year

Adrian Curry

Since it’s no secret by now that The Girlfriend Experience is my favorite movie poster of the year and since I already selected a few of these for my Best of the Decade post I decided not to rank this selection of my twenty favorites of 2009—except aesthetically. Happy New Year, thanks for reading and here’s to more dazzling design in 2010.

I would also add the French poster for Bruno Dumont’s “Hadewijch”: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3215691264/tt1257562
Hi Adrian, awesome selection! I would also consider this poster from The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus: http://www.theauteurs.com/notebook/posts/1159 Cheers, and happy 2010!
The poster for “Two Lovers” is conceptually interesting but the photo of Gwyneth Paltrow on the left is disproportionately smaller than the image of Joaquin Phoenix. It is an example of terrible Photoshop work…
what would be the name of the movie next to objectified, with the tree?

No “An Education”? And the poster for “Limits of Control” seems like a ripoff of a Starflyer 59 album: http://blog.invisiblecreature.com/?p=909
@mknudy That would be the poster for Dear Zachary.
thank you berry much

Precious is a glaring omission: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/9f/Precious2009poster.jpg

I like Limits of Control and with a quote from Jim Jarmusch…. Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.”
There was this Indian Movie called ‘Dev D’. Each and every one of it’s posters were beautiful! And I liked it all the more since Indian filmmakers don’t usually give attention to detail. Some of the posters: http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/movies/fstills/13812/index.html
