Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. My favorite movie at Telluride was probably Werner Herzog's reimagining/rebooting/fucking crazy BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL NEW ORLEANS. I gushed about it here if you remember.
Well, after that review I was visited by a trippy little iguana. He danced for me, puffed up his throat to show agitation if I tried to look away and then stared deep into the pit of my soul for a good half an hour. I passed whatever test this creature was putting me through because I was rewarded with this below image, much like a dog is rewarded for not shitting on the carpet.
My new pal, insisting on being called Iguana Don, told me the MPAA didn't like this poster because they cringe at posters that have someone actually pointing a gun at someone else... you can hold a gun in your hand (especially if you're an angel, then you can have a knife, too) but point it at someone and that's crossing the fucking line, my friend.
So, in all likelihood this is the only chance you're going to see this poster. Am I alone here or would this make an awesome series of posters? You know, take crazy-awesome Nic Cage scenes from this movie... the Iguana stare-down, the dancing soul, the pharmacy scene... and transform them into posters with this style?
All I know is after seeing this movie I wish I had this poster in full movie poster 27X40 size framed on my wall. I hope you like it as much as I did.
Thanks, Iguana Don. I look forward to your next visit. Just don't bite my toes this time. I'm still picking those scabs off, you dirty little bugger!
