A Poster that may have sold me on a 2008 movie



I had never heard of the original movie or even this remake, both directed by Michael Haneke, but the above poster with its stylized, painting-like visage of a crying Naomi Watts. It sort of reminds me of a 1970's-80's album cover for some reason.

I like suspense movies in a closed space, and somehow, this seems like something that will amply fit into that category.

Take a look at the trailer too. I think this is the first movie in a long while featuring insanity and Tim Roth as two mutually exclusive entities, and that also promises to make this a treat.

Yes! We saw the trailer for this last weekend and Mrs. Fab and I both looked at each other and agreed we needed to check it out.

Reminds me of the cover for Styx Pieces of Eight. I think one of the album's inside images showed a tear coming out of the woman's eye. I agree, this poster is really compelling, totally want to see the movie.

Fab: It certainly looks tense... though I've heard that it is virtually a shot-by-shot remake of the director's original film, so we may all be able to see it a little earlier.

Heidi: It certainly stood out from the list of posters a particular site was featuring.
