Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 12.06.47 AM“The timeless beauty of Catherine Deneuve…”

“The cruel elegance of David Bowie…”

“The open sensuality of Susan Sarandon…”

Described in the 1983 trailer as “a modern classic of perverse fearThe Hunger is on my list of favorite flicks.  Fortunate for us, it also falls into that same category for artist Midnight Marauder.  From the opening performance of “Bella Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus to Tony Scott’s sublime vampire vision, this movie still seems exceptional 30 years later.

Directed by Tony Scott, the movie stars Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon Dan Hedaya, Cliff De Young and features a cameo by a young Willem Dafoe.  If vampires are not your thing, don’t get caught up in that!  The story is beautifully told and is more about love and loss than anything else.

Artist Midnight Marauder has just released a new Criterion Cover print that subtly shows the intensity of the film and features Midnight Marauder’s indicative signature style.

When asked about the project, this is what Midnight Marauder had to say. “It’s an experimental art house vampire flick that I have always liked for it’s ‘rock n rollness’.  Tony Scott needs to be talked about a little more since his unfortunate passing last year. I think the film community needs to give the guy his proper dues. I am hoping to work on more of his films this later thiss year.”  Hmmm… could True Romance, Man on Fire, The Last Boy Scout or Enemy Of The State be on Midnight Marauder’s agenda? Who knows but one thing is for certain, whatever movies he sets his sights on we will be getting some stunning images from his perspective.
