Six Pix: Sunglasses

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

Six Pix: Even cooler with sunglasses!


Included are: The Invisible Man (1933); Lolita (1962); The Killers (1964); The Blues Brothers (1980); Risky Business (1983); and They Live (1988).

What’s the invisible man trying to cover up behind his dark glasses? What do a drifter’s new-found shades reveal? How did they ever make a movie of Lolita? Why did the mark of a cool professional hit man not run? How can Jake and Elwood fail when they’re on a mission from God? And is “Ralph” ready for Lana? The most successfully rendered film posters pose provocative questions—either implicitly or explicitly. So which of these six does the best job of arousing your curiosity, wanting to seek answers through watching the movie? For me, Lolita’s got the look.


Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
