Two terrific posters for the Cannes Film Festival - the new one for 2011 featuring Faye Dunaway in the 1970 PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD (I have a copy somewhere, may be time for another look at this arty hippy confection) which has been restored and will be showing at this year's festival [the 64th], with Dunaway and director Jerry Schatzberg attending; and the 2009 poster which is a nice tribute to Monica Vitti and Antonioni and L'AVVENTURA.
