The ingenious poster for this year’s BFI London Film Festival, which kicked off this Wednesday, could not be more up my alley: a poster made from movie posters. Designed by [correction] Leo Burnett and Village Green, it was created by actually printing up posters, pasting them on a wall and then tearing them to conjure up the London skyline. The posters are all British quads, though not all for British films. There are local favorites My Beautiful Laundrette and This is England, and not one but two for The Long Good Friday, but there’s also Jamon Jamon and Nine Queens and Lost in Translation. The montage features three of Peter Strausfeld’s superb woodcut posters for the Academy Cinema (for Kanal, The Crime of Monsieur Lang, and Tonite Let's All Make Love in London) and I’m happy to see two Tarkovsky posters in there. In addition to the ten posters featured below and the ones I've already mentioned, I also spotted Punch-Drunk Love and, barely there, The Men Who Stare at Goats, but I’m sure there are a couple of others in the mix that I’ve missed. I’m not sure for example who the bearded gentleman beneath the London “Gherkin” is. And can anyone recognize the poster with the drawing of a helicopter to the left of The Man Who Knew Too Much below? Or the sunflowers below that? Someone elucidate me please. A larger version to help you out can be perused here.
