Polish Film Poster of the Week (9/10-9/16)


This week: Kramer vs. Kramer (1983); artist: Lezsek Drzewinski

Ed's 2-Second Analysis: The brave choice to leave both Hoffman and Streep out of the imagery does a lot to say where the true battleground of divorce is: the psyche of the children involved. Showing the child ripped apart--especially into building blocks, an image fraught with childhood memories for many people--is an enormously affective illustration of this principle.

I love your blog. I hope you don't mind, I've kinda stole (homaged really) your weekly Polish film poster thing as sort of a monthly feature on my own blog, though not with Polish film posters, with other topics. Anyways you'll see a similarity if you visit my blog.

I always appreciate comments on my blog and advice from people who's blogs are better than mine. I visit here often. That's it.

Thanks for visiting Shoot the Projectionist often. I appreciate the support. My only advice is read as much real academic film writing and watch as many movies as you possibly can. And then think.
