Just glad you haven't lost sight of your roots.
Gotta drive those prices up (or down).

I like the Typewriter, but the Waiting for Julien was the only one that gave me a visceral, yummy reaction.

Maybe if it's blurry you cant see all the dents, creases, and misspellings

Glad to see Waiting for Julien to get so much love. I'm curious - are most people liking it because they're fans of the film, or just because it's a great looking print?

I hadn't (haven't) seen the film, but I really liked the image. While at the gallery on Wednesday, to photograph the originals, I had a conversation with Laurent and Jack about the show. I asked which piece was most pleased with. He responded with 'Waiting for Julien'.

We then discussed the film's plot and how the piece contained some easter eggs from it. The way Jack and Laurent described their appreciation and admiration for the film really made me appreciate it more as well. Their words, and the amazing piece of art, made me want to see the film immediately. That's what a good alternative film poster (whether it's an art print or not) should do; make you want to go out and watch that film (while also leading you on a path to see more from that genre, time, actor/actress, director, etc.).

That's great to hear - thanks for the insight Billy. I still need to watch the film myself.

The quality control was apparently non-existent. Below is one of the more egregious examples, but there were lots of printing issues reported on fb, as well as consistent damage throughout portions of specific editions. That, and Domhnall Gleeson's name is misspelled on Ex Machina.

Those pics look pretty slick though. Makes me want that river var even more.
