Movie Poster of the Week: F.W. Murnau’s “Tabu” and the Posters of Boris Streimann

28 March 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1978 re-release poster for Tabu (F.W. Murnau, USA, 1931)

I only recently came across the posters of German artist Boris Streimann (1908-1984)—who was known to also sign his work as B. Namir—and was immediately struck by both the dynamism and the color of his work. The author of hundreds, if not thousands, of posters from the late 20s through the late 60s, Streimann loved diagonals. All of the posters I have selected— the best of his work that I could find—work off a strong diagonal line, with even his varied and very inventive title treatments (which could have been the work of another designer) often placed on an angle. On top of the sheer energy and movement of his posters, his use of color is extraordinary: brash and expressionistic like his brushwork.

The first of a series of novels, the success of the film will dictate future adaptations, but the results, especially after such a long gestational period, are superbly woeful. Questionable casting and a gruesomely synthetic screenplay that awkwardly veers from broad comedy to schmoozy romance to demonic hunting super hero scenario gives the film an unappealing adolescent quality that only gets worse as the film drags on and on.

Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin), resides in the small California desert town, Pico Mundo. Having somewhat of a strange reputation due to his name, thus coined by his mother who now resides in »

'71 – first look review

7 February 2014 9:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A young English squaddie is trapped in a hostile area of Belfast, 1971 in director Yann Demange's harrowing drama, writes Andrew Pulver

• Berlin 2014: Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel - review

• More on the Berlin film festival

The Northern Ireland Troubles emerge as a phantasmagoric nightmare in this harrowing, powerful study of a single violent night in Belfast in, as the title indicates, 1971. The date is key: the sectarian conflict in the North had only recently reignited after the civil rights campaigns of the mid 60s, and British soldiers deployed on the streets in 1969. Within a short time both republican and loyalists were engaged in copious bloodletting; the British army, jumpy and out of its depth, had little experience with dealing with hostile civilians so close to home. 1971 saw internment introduced; the following year, 1972, was the Troubles' most deadly, with nearly 500 killings.

This, then, is the historical backdrop: we »
