One of our favorite graphic designers and go-to’s for inspiration, Midnight Marauder, has created an online poster exhibition celebrating maverick film director Robert Altman and his films.
“The purpose of this exhibition was to pay homage to Altman the man and Altman the filmmaker. Working on his vast body of Films in the old traditions of some of my favorite poster designers. Some of my biggest Influences as a designer have come from the Eastern European (Polish, Czech and German) posters of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Artists such as Hans Hillman, Isolde Monson-Baumgat, Karel Vaca and Roman Cieslewicz just to name a few. It is with that in mind that I have worked on over 50 + posters for this project. Carefully picking the right colors, fonts and composition was crucial for this project to succeed. Focusing on Altmans’ many lively characters and Themes, jumping from genres to genres was a big challenge. I wanted to be limited with my resources, not relying on film stills all the way. Thinking outside the box was very important, but not over doing it was equally important.
Along the way I learned a lot about Altman the man, his passion for filmmaking was enormous and his many troubles with the Hollywood Studio system. His love for his many different acting troupes, his Dailies that were opened to pretty much anybody, have become legendary. His failures and flops, turned into cult classics and masterpieces. Ultimately he lived to fight another fight. He had amazing support from his colleagues, close friends and producers, but especially his wife Katryn Altman and his family.” —Midnight Marauder

“But the embodiment of all that is good about Popeye is [Shelley] Duvall’s Olive Oyl, who only needs the big shoes and the ornate headdress to look exactly how E.C. Segar imagined her in 1919. Tall, thin, and angular, with saucer eyes, full lips, jet-black hair, and a distinctly breathy tone of voice, Duvall was a symbol of the rebel 1970s in that she didn’t fall within the narrow spectrum of what a movie-star should look or sound like. As many have said, she was “born” to play Olive Oyl, but it’s a real performance, too, flighty and distracted, yet sweet to the core, with perfect little “oooooo” sounds whenever there’s trouble (she’s like a Marge Simpson precursor) and a moony romanticism that carries the spirit of the whole production. Her rendition of Harry Nilsson’s “He Needs Me” resurfaced to great effect in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love—which owes much of its intoxicating mixture of violence, discord, and innocence to Altman’s film—but it stands on its own for its abrasive sweetness.”

In this month’s Departures, Scott Tobias offers a re-evaluation of the much-maligned Popeye, a big-budget, family-friendly musical adaptation that somehow fits snugly into director Robert Altman’s career. [Read more…]
