These wild and wonderful Toei posters evoke a time, place, and feeling that is pure cinema.
The world can go to hell in a fuckin' hand basket, but not even total obliteration will erase the beauty and magnetic pull of these provocative, life-affirming images.
The beautiful and the grotesque ride shotgun in Japanese cinema, a cinema not polluted by Christianity, political correctness, and shrill corporate dominance.
The best poster art captures the essence of a work, cloaking us in a subversive, tempting, eroticized euphoria that is the cinema experience.
The best art violates social norms and fucks polite society in the eye socket.
Enjoy, my friends, before enjoyment of such pleasures is taken from you under the well-worn guise of "protecting the children."
