— Birdman

Marc, Katherine and I went to watch the new Alejandro González Iñárritu film starring Michael Keaton called ‘Birdman‘. I don’t think I could explain it well enough to do the film justice or make any clearer sense of it than the whole film made to me. But just take my word – go and see it!

— Free The Nipple

With a nod to one of today’s earlier posts, here’s the poster for the new documentary movie ‘Free The Nipple’.

 

The film of course deals with issues of sexual equality and the ways that women can bring everyday disparities and inequalities to the attention of the public.

— The Films Of Radley Metzger

From a Movie Posters Of The Week post by Adrian Curry:

 

I first came to know of Radley Metzger through his posters, which bears out what the 85-year-old erstwhile king of high-class erotica told me recently, that “my respect for poster design came from my realization that more people would see my posters—for a longer period—than would see my films.” This was rectified somewhat  when the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York embarked during August on a week-long, 8-film retrospective of Metzger’s legendary, ground-breaking “Art Cinema Erotica.”
