1. ”The Lobster”
The art of simplification is a hard enough one to master, but the art of simplifying one of the most arcane, intricately imagined and inexplicable films of the year down to probably the most stunningly simple posters on this list, is kind of genius level. Take a bow, then, Vasilis Marmatakis, here reuniting with Yorgos Lanthimos for “The Lobster” having also designed the artwork for “Alps” and “Dogtooth” (you might remember the latter’ssine-wave graphic). Lo-fi and yet very fresh feeling, punchy but also evocative, this series of posters is the perfect companion to the film, in posing a visual puzzle that is striking, absurd, impossible, poetic and melancholy all at once.
