Is It Art or Just A Movie Poster?

You don’t have to be a Van Gogh to have a movie about you, but sometimes the finer arts just don’t translate well onto the silver screen as you can see below with some of these recent famous artist biopics…

Woody Van Gogh!

Just caught the new Woody Allen romancer, Midnight In Paris — and while admiring the Van Gogh Starry Night inspiration for the movie poster, I couldn’t help but wonder if Van Gogh were alive today, what kind of one sheets would he create?

Considering his legendary slicing off the ear incident, I certainly hope he wouldn’t choose the blood-and-gore route like all of those horribly graphic Saw posters.
