I have to say I'm drawn to the first and last graphics. The first has a splendid color and posterization mix. The Japanese poster has an sparse but elegant image that effectively telegraphs the character's isolation in the film. Great selections, Jeremy.

I totally agree. The first and last are my favorites as well. I included that second one as I thought it was interesting that they used Jodie Foster's friend in the poster (who was the real life inspiration for Foster's character). Thanks for commenting.

I tells ya, the current DVD cover for TD enrages me: an image of Travis with the mohawk--it's a total spoiler!
