I ran across a website with an impressive collection of movie title stills. I love that moment occurs either right at the beginning of the movie, after some credits, or after an introductory scene, when you already have a feel for the movie, where the title hits the screen, either boldly or subtly or somewhere in between. If you don’t have a feel for the movie yet, the movie title screen should probably help you out with that. Really good ones do.
I collected the near-complete stills of the Coen Brothers’ movies, from Blood Simple to Burn After Reading. We are missing The Hudsucker Proxy and The Ladykillers. I’ve got to say…the typography on Blood Simple really blew me away. Take a look and a trip down memory lane.
The retrospective begins (as did the Coens’ career) with Blood Simple on September 18.
Something kinda nerdy. Look at Blood Simple and Fargo next to one another. BEAUTIFUL!
