POISON (1991) Dutch poster
Vintage original 18 x 25″ (47 x 66 cm.) poster, Netherlands. Scott Renderer, dir: Todd Haynes. Todd Haynes’ Poison is a bold film in which three unrelated stories are intercut. One of them is a loose adaptation from Jean Genet’s Our Lady of the Flowers. Poison was Haynes’ feature film debut, and it was one of the groundbreaking films in the then emerging New Queer Cinema movement. The US poster for the film is OK, but does not, in my opinion, hold a candle to this stark piece, designed by Jean Paul Commandeur, with its closeup of Renderer, in the lead role of prisoner John Broom.
This Dutch poster is exceedingly scarce. I have never seen another — nor have I ever seen any other European poster for this landmark movie. Folded, with slight signs of handling at folds, NEAR FINE.
