I came across this double sided UK poster for Punch Drunk Love and picked it up, it's not a reprint, but the original, very cool.

Yeah it's really wonderful. But that's what I love about UK Quad's!

From theauteurs.com:



The only thing I would really wish different about this gorgeous abstract Japanese poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2002 Punch-Drunk Love is that it were bigger. It is in fact a chirashi. Chirashi (the word is derived from the verb “chirasu”—to scatter, disperse) are small (7" x 10") promotional handbills that are distributed in Japanese movie theaters. Highly collectible among Japanese cinephiles, they are usually full color mini versions of the official release poster, with monochrome photos and text on the reverse, though the small format allows occasionally for affordable variations on the theatrical poster design. There is a terrific selection of chirashi collected, and available for purchase, here.

For Punch-Drunk Love, Toho-Towa, the Japanese distributor, produced a series of nine designs based on the lush colorfield “motion paintings” by Jeremy Blake that punctuate the film and add to its hallucinatory quality (see here). Blake was a rising star in the Los Angeles art world and a pioneer in digital painting when Paul Thomas Anderson commissioned the work (the same year that Blake also created the four covers for Beck’s Sea Change album). But, as reported a couple of years ago in New York Magazine and Vanity Fair, a series of personal set-backs, culminating in the 2007 suicide of his partner and fellow artist Theresa Duncan, led to the 35-year-old Blake taking his own life by walking into the sea at Rockaway Beach.

It was rumored that Bret Easton Ellis was writing a script about the tragic couple’s life, with Gus Van Sant attached in some capacity, but that remains to be seen. Van Sant’s upcoming film Restless, a film reported to be about “two lovers with a preoccupation with mortality” but based on a play by Jason Lew, is probably coincidental.

Meanwhile, if anyone ever sees full poster size versions of any of the Blake designs, please let me know.

Holy crap, I want to buy every one of those.


EDIT: I am currently in the process of buying every one of those.  The website is here, by the way, for those who want to save themselves an extra click.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

yeah i don't think these are very good examples of JB's art.

they look way too blown up and grainy.

the colours are there.. sort of, but not the compositions. even though they're probly directly taken from the film, they just don't seem to capture the PUNCH of those moments.
under the paving stones.

At 2 bucks each, I'm not all that picky.  They'll look real purdy up on my walls.

Just ordered for 50$ of all kinds of these. I hope they'll be good, but I'm pretty confident.
