A callback to a master...

"Burn After Reading," the new film by the Coen Brothers, is set for release on September 12. The poster art, embedded here seems to bear much influence from Sal Bass, an artist and designer whose work is most closely associated with Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, and Martin Scorsese. Not a bad gig. His work is more shiek than chic, but it definitely has a sort of retro-cool. Anyone who is a fan of opening title sequences is okay by me.

Saul Bass - a great online resource of his work
