The Proposition (Variant) by Ken Taylor

Both of these look great - but i think the B&W variant is the pick of the two

Idk, i actually favor the reg. I enjoy when Ken uses more color (e.g. Mursi). With this one it has color in the right places, but it's still muted/under-saturated. So it maintains that bleakness. Great piece either way you go.

The only thing that turns me off about the variant is I fear it will be covered with that cheap looking metallic wash.

Ken's posters are always so good, is it just expected and he's underrated as drymount (or maybe underappreciated) because he delivers a really good poster every time?

Idk. I'm biased because I'm a KT fanboy, but I think he always delivers a stellar product

It's an okay poster overall, but that title treatment is aces.
