Room to have Durieux 'sketch' in a credit block next time you see him at a con.

Kinda prefer the darker blue of the blouse on the reg over the teal-ish variant

Richard Gere bought a bunch just to rip up and use as stuffing for his gerbil's cage.

I nearly collapsed when I got the tweet until I saw both posters.

Tree of Life is a nice looking poster but the homoeroticism is a bit much for me and the silhouettes on Days of Heaven kill it for me. Would have much preferred something closer to the actual film. Something showcasing Nestor Almendro's breathtaking cinematography. Even just the burning house would have made for a much more effective poster but these are just boring, and the lack of credit block seems like a weird omission.

When the source material is a PG drama/romance, I think you can expect a whole bunch of flippers.

Yes please do elaborate how brothers swimming together is even remotely related to the male form being displayed and not even defined as even scraping the surface of being deemed as homoeroticism

Have any of you seen the film? Jack is repressed and struggling with his sexuality. The poster clearly has him being held ever so gently at the navel lol.
