Chris Ware Heads To The Movie Lobby

Rob covered School of the Art Institute alum Apichatpong Weerasethakul‘s Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives when it was awarded the Palme d'Or for his new film at Cannes last year, and he reviewed it when it finally came to town as part of the Chicago International Film Festival. Now that the film is finally getting a wider release fellow Chicagoan Chris Ware has been drafted to create a movie poster for the film and it's just as intricate and stunningly detailed as you would expect it to be. Remember when posters in movie lobbies were also pieces of actual art? Obviously Chris Ware does.
