"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Posterized: François Ozon

Glennhere.Given my penchant for poster goodness I figured I'd pick up Nathaniel's regular "posterized"feature.A fun series that can time to time shine a curious light on the way films are marketed and how certain actors or directors can find themselves in a so-called "marketing rut"where it's the same thing over and over.Think of a Will Smith movie and don't you just picture his smug mug staring out at you in mid-range closeup?Even that one about selling his organs to Rosario Dawson (or whateverSeven Poundswas about - I've sure as hell forgotten!)

This week I've chosen François Ozon - and he's having a helluva week.Not only is his latest (un/lucky number thirteen) film,In the House [Dans le maison],getting a release in America,but his next picture,Jeune et Jolie,wasjust chosento compete for the Palme d'Or in Cannes.Well done,Mr.Ozon!Still,don't the words "A film by François Ozon"feel like they should carry more weight than they do.Perhaps,but his career is too all over the place to give him the title of auteur and his films frequently go theatrically unreleased in western countries without a major star (Catherine Deneuve,Charlotte Rampling for instance) at the center.

Combien avez-vous vu?

Sitcom(1998) |Criminal Lovers(1999) |Water Drops of Burning Rocks(2000)

Okay,I have no idea what it's about but that poster for Ozon's debut,Sitcom,is fabulous.

Under the Sand(2000) |Swimming Pool(2003) |8 Women(2002)
