Good additions... never heard of most of them but they had a great marketing team at least.

Gonna write a bit about Berberian in the movie thread - it's a divisive sort of film, very unhurried and open-ended, but anyone who enjoys Lynchian mundane surrealism, and has love for Foley work and general 1970s analogue film-making should dig it. At ~90mins it's relatively compact, I recommend it if you're in the mood for something offbeat. :smile:

Sounds like a winner so far. :)

Peter Strickland's The Duke of Burgundy also comes highly recommended. It's also decidedly more sexy. ;)

Haven't seen his latest In Fabric yet, but once again the promo poster does not disappoint!

Man, I've got some catching up to do. :o Onto the watchlist! Got his debut already lined up. Seems to work with some superb talents.

If you have a bit of time and some beastly PC gaming equipment at your beck and call, I would suggest taking a look at Cosmo D's weird freebie title, "Off Peak."
https://store.steampowered.com/app/467360/OffPeak/

It's got a lot of 70s Polish and other unusual posters plastered throughout. Can't say too much more about the thing, except that it is fun and Artistic.

Since I've viewed some high-res versions of this poster, there's a feature I've been obsessed with: The guy hanging down from the front of the shovel got impaled. There may be some variants on this, but none are too graphic - just suggestive.

(click 4 full MONSTA REZ :shock:)

Kinda arcade poster-esque. Could easily see an Elevator Action-esque caper based around that imagery. I know, time paradox. :mrgreen:

Solyent Green, this movie mesmerized me when I watched it as a 7 or 8 years old kid ; what were my parents doing ?

Now I've done an image research and found this :

I find it interesting to think that the punk-rock band may have found its name here, rather than in some Marijuana induced delirium.

I can't vouch for this WW1-era adventure movie since i haven't seen it, but it certainly has one heck of a poster.
Spoiler: show

EDIT, had to post the soundtrack cover because the movie poster blew up into low res. Yuck. Lee Marvin's pensive stare gives me a shade of remembrance to Schneider's war weary face in Same! 8)

The exploding ship + biplane certainly adds to the association!

It's okay--very overlong like most of author Wilbur Smith's books. The director did another Smith adaptation with Moore two years before, Gold, but I haven't seen or read that one yet. There's one nuts scene with a giant stone wheel rolling down a hill with a man stuck on it. It's really crazy and has always stuck with me. Otherwise the "standout" is Moore doing espionage in brown face :shock: . Best off watching Death Hunt with Marvin vs Bronson a few years later from the director and Dark of the Sun from 1968 by cinematographer Jack Cardiff. Way more lean and better than the book.

Holy fuck yeah :shock: Dig those arcing YGWsplosions over the ship, too. Reminds me of a whole raft of vintage WAR IS HELL STG artwork, like Daisenpu, Jackal, and especially Hishouzame's overseas boxart:

(along with the forlorn young woman observing all this strife, Mr. Elephant at 10 o'clock gives it a bit of that existential Taito melancholia Image On this day, History is about to repeat itself)

Speaking of history repeating itself!
