Capitalism: A Love Story Posters



Michael Moore last few movie’s have had some striking, funny and sometimes polemic posters. They always caught your attention and often presented a clever visual linked to the theme of the movie.

All of that only made me more disappointed at this latest one. It tries to be funny, but the joke is terminally lame. Moore doesn’t have his usual mischievous grin, instead having a very earnest serious expression, which isn’t nearly as effective. And the colors and drawings are just dull.

This second poster that surfaced last week has much more style and visual flair. So better in that aspect. But still, where is the fun? Still barely there.

Michael Moore has a brand. He makes a certain type of movie and people go to the cinema to watch that. These posters aren’t really doing a good job of selling that brand and that kind of movie.

    wow those are so lame. the SICKO posters were brilliant. the problem with the second poster is it looks like those communist propaganda posters.

    people will argue that’s what the film is. I say it creates a bad illusion.

    well the posters look dreadful. I would rather say that its the designer’s fault all in all. The typography is so bad that you can`t really make out the message that it has tried to convey. And yep people, there’s no continuity in the posters at all…actually they look like two different movies, least connected with each other..goss…my suggestion to the director would be…keep an eye on the execution part, posters can make a hell of a difference.

    .) There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
