Movie Poster Critique: The Whore's Son
There is almost nothing to complain about with this movie poster. It has everything. A tortured choirboy. His mother the whore, who couldn't even be bothered to get dressed for the photo shoot. A blond wig, styled in a bob. And the tagline: "In spite of everything, she's still your mom." (But why isn't "still" in italics?!) How did this movie not set the world ablaze with its breathless and writhing family politics of a sexual nature? Please tell me this didn't go straight to DVD, because if a Hollywood studio can't find an audience for this smut then someone is not doing his job.
The bottom line is, America needs to see this movie. It will heal so many wounds.
And I'm not even going to go into what I was Googling when I came upon this photo. It would reflect badly on me.
