In modern cinema, the movie poster has become more representative of the business than the art itself.  Fraught with sex, violence and sixth-grade-slogans, movie posters tend to serve the interest of the film’s marketers moreso than its makers.   In an attempt to resurrect the classic vision of the movie bill, British illustrator Olly Moss has designed a series of movie posters for films both young and old.  Simple, yet strong, Moss’s work describes the peak of these plots with strong symbolism.  Take his poster for the film The Deer Hunter– anyone who has seen this film understands Moss’s imagery– and how an image so simple can represent the deepest emotions of the film.  [ollymoss via designboom]
