… of the week? Like, there are other posters posts we put on our blog for special recognition? No, we’re too lazy for that. But we saw this image of The Devil’s Double (2011) pop up on Netflix as we were browsing the new releases. The movie actually sounds pretty interesting. It’s about an Iraqi man that was forced to double for Grade-A prime sociopath, murderer, torturer, and a generally extreme malevolent rat bastard, Uday Hussein. The film delves into the inner workings of the Hussein family and their unholy war against humanity. If the history of the Iraqi whackos weren’t true, the story would probably be just another violence fetish film. As it is, we’re not sure if we can watch this kind of barbarism since it involves the horror of pain and suffering of actual people.
The movie poster is artistic brilliance. Kind of a Tony Montana thing going on combined with the Middle Eastern obsession with gold. Reminds us a bit of a scene from the new Winnie the Pooh movie — honey dripping all over the place. Only we really like honey and it’s innocent as far as we know.
Anyway, very cool image. Once you click it open to a new screen click it again to expand all the way. It’s even more incredible in a larger size.
Side note: We were trying to figure out who Uday Hussein looks like. It took us a while, but we’ve got it. Carlos Boozer (NBA’s Cavs, Jazz, and Bulls) is the guy. That doesn’t seem fair. Carlos may be thuggish but he’s no mass murderer or mysogenist. Still, uncanny isn’t it.
