There is the usual treasure trove of international cinema currently playing on MUBI in the United States, but in among the Ealing Comedies, the second part of an essential Heinz Emigholz retrospective, and the jamboree bag of past Cannes favorites, for me the current standouts are the four films by Claude Sautet that still have over a week left to run. One of the less well-known of the great French filmmakers of the second half of the 20th century, Claude Sautet’s films are hard to see but they are gems that should not be missed. And they also have terrific posters. Here are my favorite French and international posters for the four films that MUBI is currently showing: Max and the Junkmen (1971), César and Rosalie (1972), Vincent, François, Paul and the Others (1974) and A Bad Son (1980).
