This is not a list of the best movies of 2013. This is simply a list of the best posters. Some represent their movie perfectly. Some actually sell a better, more different movie. But out of the hundreds of one-sheets released this year, these are the 10 that we love the most.
Every year there are dozens of other films that you haven't heard of that are just as great -- films that fly under the radar because they didn't have the kind of studio money for distribution that someone like Martin Scorsese has.
For some psychotic reason my parents showed me '2001: A Space Odyssey' when I was around ten. Ever since, I've been chasing that dragon. I've been looking for someone to use the powerful tools of cinema to show me - not tell me - something important about the Universe and have me work to (almost) understand it.
There have been times that have come close - Godfrey Reggio's 'Koyaanisqatsi' probably closest, with 'Eraserhead' and 'Enter the Void' in there, too. I'll need to see Shane Carruth's 'Upstream Color' again, but it may belong on this short list. Almost everyone who watches 'Upstream Color' will come out of it saying "I need to see that again."
A young woman is abducted and seemingly brainwashed. She later meets a man and the two come to realize he may also have been subjected to the same process.
After a too-long delay, writer/director Shane Carruth is back with a follow-up to his time travel indie flick 'Primer.' The first trailer for 'Upstream Color' is mesmerizing and intense, and certainly appears to be a worthy sophomore effort.
