Some HE talk-backers have opined that ThinkFilm’s Saul Bass-y poster for Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, which I posted yesterday, indicates satire or even comedy. This opinion strikes me as a little too conservative-minded, and perhaps a tad clueless. Irony posters are in short supply these days, and some people like ’em plainer, simpler…just the facts, ma’am. Nonetheless, here’s a midnight variant with a different slogan — “Loyalty. It’s all relative.” You’d have to be a total idiot to look at this and go, “Oh, a comedy!”
