I love this movie. It does so much in such little time. It’s loving and contemptuous to it’s subjects; it’s exciting and boring and fascinating and cringe-worthy and sexy and funny, and sometimes it’s doing that almost all at the same time.
In short, I attempted to keep this treatment as simple as possible while having some meaning behind everything that was done. The title is taken straight from the film itself, the background is a composite of scenes from the film, blown out and imposed on other scenes. Chantal Goya’s “Madeline” is an attempt to harken to a less digital, more tactile design process; I wanted her to feel like she was cut from an old ad and pasted into this (You’ll see that in one of the ads below, she’s recolored and it looks like it’s lost a bit of detail. I tried to replicate that).
In conclusion, come over and we’ll watch the movie, or see it for yourself on The Criterion Channel.
Take a look at the posters below, all of which are more interesting than mine. My two particular faves are the Hans Hillman commission, and the Japanese poster.
