Ten Favorite Marty Scorsese Films

The Director of Drive Makes a New Movie
First off, we love a good GIF movie poster. Secondly, we’re counting the days before we get to experience Only God Forgives, the new script and directing efforts of Nicolas Winding Refns (Drive). Here is all we know: (1) It’s set in the Thailand Boxing underworld and filmed in Bangkok, (2) Ryan Gosling is back and badder than ever, and (3) Kristin Scott Thomas plays someone described as “a merciless and terrifying mafia godmother.” We’re already sold. If you can’t wait any longer, peek at the trailer here.

LA based artist Mike Mitchell is a freelance illustrator with a focus on pop culture. He is most known for creating the “I’m with Coco” poster embracing Conan O’Brien. Mike recently finished a big set of posters for his upcoming gallery show opening in two weeks. For the show, Mike tried to choose the more under appreciated film character in pop culture art. His process consisted of illustrating their personalities the way they existed in his mind. By keeping the celebrities in character, Mike wants the viewer to connect with them on a deeper level.

This has the hallmarks of what I wish to do with my work.
But really? Seven, eight months and all of a sudden Stan is wearing suede fringe jackets to work and his face has been taken over by Bigfoot? Ginsburg has a godawful mustache and appears to have exchanged his entire wardrobe? Roger is wearing man booties?? (And don’t even get me started on Harry Crane.) It’s just too much.Read more from our roundtable on ‘Mad Men,’ Season 6, Episode 3.[Image: gifboom.com]
I agree with the surprising wardrobe overhaul. The effort is overwhelming. That’s usually not seductive.
