Here’s the ‘heavy items’ checklist for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln poster:
- Daniel Day Lewis
- In profile
- His gaze pushed down
- In black and white
- Against stark white background
- Steady, classical fonts with lots of capital letters and faux-stony texturing on the title
I was going to say something about him being top lit and the gaze of god and all that, but it was… a bit oddball. Anyway, I can mention it at the bottom here for the cheap laugh, so I’m glad it crossed my mind.
