Steve McQueen's Hunger Poster Finally Revealed
The official poster for Steve McQueen's Hunger has finally been revealed. This film has been gaining quite a bit of buzz from various film festivals and critics worldwide. Don't believe any of the quotes on this poster or any of the hype - it really isn't a great film. The only reason it's "breathtakingly beautiful" or "a work of cinematic art" is because of Sean Bobbitt's cinematography. McQueen's actualy direction, on the other hand, is amateur and didn't impress me one bit. But I guess critics are tired of the same boring Hollywood crap these days and wanted something even more boring and they got it with Hunger.
Thanks to IMPAwards for debuting this poster. As much as I hated the film, I know there are people out there who do love it and I think it at least deserves some recognition for its cinematography.
Hunger is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Steve McQueen. The screenplay was co-written by both McQueen and Enda Walsh. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where it went on to win the coveted Camera d'Or award. IFC Films is distributing the film here in the US. Hunger will hit limited theaters in the US starting on December 5th.
