American Psycho (2000). As much a comedy as it is horror, and all the better for it, Mary Harron's take on Bret Easton Ellis' skewering of 1980s stock exchange culture sharpened the sweaty status anxiety while dialing down the visceral fascination with women's insides.
I like how this image is made to look as though it is painted. I also like how all of the mans features are almost sharp show that he is a dangerous and serious character, maybe someone to be feared. The knife running down above his face also shows the the man is a bit psychotic. He is standing in sort of a night time scene and there is blood running down the knife and also the background in the knife is also blood coloured.
--Direction, structure, and form are large elements in this poster.. Direction is shown by the diagonal slant of "psycho", which doubles in the category of form by contrasting from the all-caps "American". "Psycho" is all lower cased. Lastly, structure is prevalent through font contrast; "American" is Roman Oldstyle while "psycho" is more of a handwritten/scribbled font.
