"Thanks for this. It made me think about the time my dad saw Dr. Strangelove in a theatre in Japan. He was the only person laughing. Different communities can have such opposite reactions to the same movie. This is something I love about movies, and also why they're so important. Movies really do help us see and understand others' experiences, often even better than news report/footage." - Cash

Curio: Painterly Posters by Aaron Wells

Alexa here. I always enjoy a film poster that is actually painted; the eye tires of seeing only minimal vector graphics. So I love these posters I found on etsy created by freelance illustrator and painter Aaron Wells...

 

I think his choice of films lends itself to the painterly treatment in different ways, both through caricature and use of imagination. 

Or maybe I just like his taste. You can buy prints at his shop, and all are priced under $20! After the jump two Darren Aronofsky gems and and The Fifth Element...

there's something about those two Elizabeth posters that made me want a Pt 3. ...I regained sanity seconds later but still!

my favorite of these is The Fountain.

Philip -- THAT'S IT. i was trying to think of what character that poster reminded me of beyond Maggie Thatcher and there it is.

@ The Infamous, don't worry she'll win BA for "Carol" :)

@ Nathaniel R, I'm quite sure there will be a third Elizabeth
