I've loved this poster from the moment I saw it. Everything from the bathed-in-neon red filtering, the suggestive gymnastic pose, the vertical design of the text and, most especially, the lollipop. It totally gets your attention doesn't, doesn't it? And for a movie like Wayne Wang's tiny The Center of the World you need something extra. Something, which so few posters seem to have.
