My Picks: 15 (+ 3 Sets) Favourite Posters of 2014

ENEMY (2014) UNDER THE SKIN (2014) WHIPLASH (2014)

每每到了送旧迎新的时刻,纵使再如何淡然以待或放轻展望,但还是不停闪过回顾的念头。绕过贰零壹叁,在倒数贰零壹伍之际,我一览曾于贰零壹肆在 { 自架电影海报专网 } 分享的约 2 千款电影海报,选出了其中 15 款第一眼钟情作品。此外,我也另选 3 组极具印记点的系列图集。

当中,尤以满溢艺术热血的绘制海报,最能直接俘虏我的视觉;而热身吸众的先行海报,则往往因较具想象空间而更为引人入胜,像是简洁而朴实投映 12 年记述原点的《Boyhood》、以即时新闻形态砌图再引领影迷步步追踪的《Gone Girl》、让传记故事中风景画家主人公那浪漫主义的色彩探索精神布满眼帘的《Mr. Turner》等。值得一提的是,优质偶像 Jake Gyllenhaal 今年不仅端上 2 大出彩佳演,由其担纲的这 2 部佳作 ——Nightcrawler》及《Enemy》的宣传作业也加分不少;尤其是后者,我是反复细赏及几经思索后,才迫于割舍重意象的美国版海报及妙融的西班牙版海报,而选择了更能展现一人二角千丝万缕的日本版海报

{ Honorable Mention / Alternative Picks }

曾几何时,系列作业已成了片商的指定宣传搞作,角色海报更是泛滥到渐趋了无新意的态况;然而这些无法单一选择的设计中,还是偶见契合影片的创意惊喜。当中,个人首推出自韩国工作室、遵循奥斯卡外语片入围遗珠《Mommy》拍摄格式的 1:1 画幅海报系列、年度嗨片《Inherent Vice》统一风格的 彩绘海报系列,以及饥饿游戏最终章上部《The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1》以时尚包装的 District Heroes 病毒式营销海报系列,既吸睛也精准勾勒电影轮廓。
