“Minimalist” Film Posters

For awhile now I have been a fan of “minimalist” movie posters. These are the posters which show little detail, but which often say so much about a film. They are frequently very simple, clever and creative. They are thought-provoking because most of them capture the very essence of a film and can distil a whole movie at a glance; a kind of “the fewer the words, the deeper the meaning” motto, but here, instead of the words, it is lines and presentation.

Warning, I do not own the images presented below, and some of them can reveal important plot twists.
