Grey Gardens: Staunch Characters

If you’re a movie lover, you’re probably overdosing on year-end top ten lists these days. Odds are, though, none of the ones you’ve seen are quite like this one by Sam Smith, the graphic designer who provided the cover images for Criterion’s releases of House and Modern Times and the theatrical one-sheet for Janus Films’ release of Kuroneko. Smith has designed an original poster mock-up for each of his ten favorite films of 2010, and the results are pretty lovely. We’re especially fond of how he evokes The Illusionist, Bluebeard, and Toy Story 3.
