Movie Poster of the Week: "Do It Again"

Movie Poster of the Week has been at the International Film Festival Rotterdam this past week, scouting some brand new poster art from around the world. Next week I'll be posting a larger selection of what I've been seeing, but this is one of my favorites and one of the first to catch my eye. Directed by Robert Patton-Spruill, and having its world premiere in Rotterdam, Do It Again documents Boston rock critic Geoff Edgers' quest to reunite The Kinks. A glorified episode of Bands Reunited (which I don't mean disparagingly since I mourn that show's demise), though as much a portrait of the overly optimistic Edgers than of his favorite band, the film features a remarkably accommodating Sting, a wide-eyed Zooey Deschanel, and a marvellously pissed off Paul Weller among its interviewees.

The superb poster was drawn by Dave Plunkert of Baltimore-based Spur Design, more of whose remarkably witty illustration can be seen on his website. He also designed this poster for the gaming doc The Dungeon Masters, which won the best poster award at last year's South by Southwest.

    Sonny Kay’s poster for Sentimental Engine Slayer is infinitely better

    Pouya, we’ll beg to differ on “infinitely better” but I’ll definitely include that one next week.

    Why no RSS link on the page? I’d like to keep up with this in Google Reader…

    Hi Jim,

    If you go to the Notebook dashboard (http://www.theauteurs.com/notebook/posts) there is always an RSS link in the upper right hand corner of the current banner image (right now it’s for Rotterdam).
