New WALL•E Featurette with director Andrew Stanton among others.
Old people are great. Especially these ones.
This wonderful 24″x36″ 5-color screen-printed poster was designed by Tyler Stout, commissioned by the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Great illustrations and nice details, printing by D&L Screenprinting in Seattle. Be sure to check out his Blade Runner and Big Trouble in Little China designs. Unfortunately all three sold out.
Watching just one of Jodorowsky’s films is like viewing a thousand posters with a thousand visual puns hidden within. Bizarre and wonderful. I strongly recommend El Topo and The Holy Mountain. Here’s a bit more about his career:
He started his film career in Mexico with Fando y Lis (1968). The feature-length film debuted in Acapulco at the Film Festival and is famous for having incited a full scale riot there, requiring that Jodorowsky be smuggled out in a limousine.
El Topo (1970), a mystical Western, was his second film and is now considered a cult classic. John Lennon and Yoko Ono helped to arrange the film’s release and distribution in the United States through Beatles manager Allen Klein.Jodorowsky’s third film, La montaña sagrada (The Holy Mountain) (1973), was entirely financed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. At a projected budget of US$1,500,000, it was the most expensive Mexican film production to date. It has been suggested that The Holy Mountain may have been inspired by Rene Daumal’s surrealist novel Mount Analogu.
