Great composition...

Muted color palette is a nice choice too.

This is solid. Really nails the film's tone, first Mondo poster in a while to do that for me. Hopefully pick one up down the line.

Compositionally, this looks fantastic. I'd have to see a close up of De Niro, but I would almost say it might have been better to have him be walking away (lose the face). Very minor gripe though, overall, very nice imagery. Captured the film and grit of NY well.

Definitely captures the mood and feel of the film. When I see this, I hear Bernard Herrmann's score in the background.

Love the heat wave effect on the side of DeNiro.

I like that too - I see it as Travis' distorted view of the world.

Man, this is pretty rad. Reminds me a little of a scene from a Ralph Bakshi film.

A perfect interpretation of the film. There's something really claustrophobic about the composition, and I really like how pissed off and sinister Travis looks. However, the heat haze makes the whole print. Can't wait to see it in person.
