The only Japanese designed poster on the countdown is this one for Pier Pasolini's Teorema. I generally find Japanese posters (for both Japanese films and international films) to be incredibly messy and unprofessional. Like, a lot of the time they're just a movie still blown up and splashed with colourful Japanese text.
But this? This poster for Teorema? That's beautiful. What it all means is a mystery to me, but it has a dready quality to it that I find irresistibile. However, that small image of somebody's eyes appearing out from the dirt (under Silvana Mangano's arm) is kind of scary. It feels like a David Lynch poster, actually, now that I think about it. And we all know they can be amazing.
