There's a new movie coming from director Roman Coppola. It's called A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Chales Swann III. The posters are not too subtle on the symbolism and look like this.
They instantly reminded me of Paper Moon Graphics greeting cards that was founded in 1977 and was terribly popular all throughout the '80's. If you don't know Paper Moon, their stuff is just so of the era. Sex, money, decadence, detached anxiety and vapid high gloss glitz. It's all there. But don't believe me. See for yourself.
As a kid, I loved to buy the cards, the stationary sets, the writing pads. But of course if there was a joke, innuendo or any deeper layer of meaning, I simply didn't get it. Case in point: I bought a button for a friend that said "virgin" and had no idea what it meant outside of "pure." Actually, because of paintings of the Virgin Mary and the turn of phrase "virgin snow," I thought it meant "pale." She was really fair and freckly. I thought it was appropriate and would make her feel special. It goes without saying the other kids laughed.
Anyway, back to this movie. I checked IMDB and sure enough, the blurb reads, "A graphic designer's enviable life slides into despair when his girlfriend breaks up with him." Oh, and it takes place in the '70's. In other words: nailed it. Actually, the designers of the posters are the ones nailing it.
Either way, I don't know if I should be proud of myself or get a life.
