the tell tale heart

Example


This is the poster for a upcoming film, a remake of the 1978 film 'Fingers' - about the son of a mobster whose life is divided between a career as a pianist and a mobster debt collector (and I thought I had an odd mix of jobs when working as both a quality officer with red cross blood service and as a library shelver). It's not so much that this is a very interesting peice of news in itself, simply that in my opinion this is a really fantastic movie poster. The simplicity of attire, one bloodied hand, the assemblage of overlayed squares within the photo slightly off centre - creates an idea of a fractured existence. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Roman Duris is pretty hot. Nothing at all.

I have to say every time I see this poster, I can't take my eyes off of it (and I see the poster everywhere!).

Oooh yeah, Romain Duris! He could come up and see me anytime!
