Friday's Top 5... Posters of the 1990s

#5: Donnie Brasco

Framed as if it's a surveillance photo, this poster couldn't possibly be more perfect. It suggests the tone the film will take and nicely sets up the characters' positions in the story.

#4: Naked Lunch

Weird. Kind of disturbing. Perfectly Cronenberg.

#3: Delicatessen

I find this poster so unsettling. I've never seen Delicatessen but the poster makes me want to while simultaneously making me kind of afraid to.

#2: Office Space

I've totally had this day. I'm sure that anyone who has ever worked in an office feels the same way.

#1: Fargo

A poster that captures both the folksy charm of Fargo's characters and the violence of its story. It's a creative and totally charming poster.

I enjoyed "Donnie Brasco" but I've never seen that poster for it before; it's really something.

I love that Fargo poster. It's one of my all-time faves. If you like any of Jeunet's other films, give Delicatessen a go.
