Chris Ware: Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

The essence of strangeness

Published on

Editor's Pick

Cartoonist Chris Ware (author of the graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth) created this poster for 2010 Cannes Palme d'Or winner Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.

To capture the essence of this haunting Thai ghost story, (which includes scenes of sex with a catfish and ghost monkeys), Ware says he tried to create something "punchy and strange, so as to draw viewers in and pique their curiosity without, hopefully, insulting their intelligence". The movie is out on March 2 in New York.
