I know the Spirit did not get good reviews at the box office Winter 2008...but what was interesting was the design work for the posters and the advertising when the film was released in theaters.
So the picture you see here is the actual DVD cover for the film. Whether than pushing the level of design for the layout and composition, it just went for a look that is uninteresting. I'm just wondering why Eva Mendes' character is the only one caught in motion, while everyone else is in a static position. No consistency...or no relevant need for contrast and tension.
It really does capture the movie essence in a nutshell (saw the film in December). It leaves with the notion of going for something else. Or to say, "Could it had been better than this?" And the answer is yes...yes it could.
