MUBI’s Movie Poster of the Week


5 of 5 stars
What’s this?

For four-plus years, Adrian Curry has been turning in a regular column at MUBI Notebook called “Movie Poster of the Week.” The name is a bit of a misnomer, because every entry features at least a half dozen fascinating specimens of posters past and present; it’s as compelling a survey of the intersection of cinema and graphic design as any out there.

If weekly strikes you as insufficient, Curry also maintains a Tumblr called Movie Poster of the Day, which as the name suggests presents a single poster once a day. It’s great too, but the writing at MUBI is a reward in itself, so visit Movie Poster of the Week first. Oh, also, MUBI is phenomenal.
