Evil People In Modernist Homes In Popular Films
Graphic designer creates a niche zine exploring the relationship between modern architecture and cinema.
Yale School of Art graduate Benjamin Critton‘s zine Evil People in Modernist Homes in Popular Films combines great typography and design with essays, a viewing list, film highlights and stills. Printed in a tabloid format in red and yellow ink, the zine examines the houses used by filmmakers as home bases for their villains. A number of films are listed as examples, including Diamonds Are Forever (1971), Blade Runner (1982) L.A. Confidential (1997), and Twilight (2008). The zine is available from Printed Matter for $10.
Evil People in Modernist Homes in Popular Films offers a serious but lighthearted investigation of the representation of Modernist architecture in popular film, reflecting on the convention of associating evil characters and events with Modern buildings, and also, more generally, on the relation between cinema and architecture.
