Adore the film. Print is a total dud. Even beyond its conception, the peepshow illustration just feels off, especially Kinski's attire.

Yes. It's a portion of the monologue at the end. An odd image to cling onto for a film that has a ton of unforgettable images.

Right, I remember it now. Pretty gutted about this, been looking forward to it since the first previews were shared. I get that it's supposed to be dreamlike but it feels floaty and disconnected (like the literally disconnected phone that is really bugging me) - I had greater expectations considering this is supposedly Laurent's fave film. Will probably still pick up one just for the rarity of any posters for this movie.

Definitely worth watching the whole movie to feel the impact of that perfect scene.

Yeah, I was itching for a piece from this movie that I ended up doing a Lotay commission.

Luls. This one is a solid though. The movie, not the poster. The poster is meh, to my liking.
