Cannes 2009 – The Greatest Poster

In the motion picture world … there is marketing, and then there is marketing…

I’m not sure whether this actor’s approach to landing a new role is genius or crazy, it’s a fine line in an industry where “nobody knows anything.”

But to this day, coming across this poster outside of the Palais in Cannes remains one of my favorite and funniest moments of the festival. There is something to be said for reckless belligerent confidence in the film business, perhaps.
