Saul Bass - Antsy, Artsy

A few screen-grabs here from Phase IV, directed by Saul Bass. This is a fantastic, beautifully made movie, recently released on DVD and well worth finding and watching. For the full set of shots, as well as more inane blathering by me, go here.

I saw this for the first time a couple years ago, The movie poster is really fantastic with the ants on the hand, very weird. Great screen grabs, I forgot how interesting the visuals were in this.

Yeah I agree, Phase IV is an extraordinary film. I had never heard of it either, until I accidentally zapped into it on TV several years ago and immediately got sucked in. Really great film still picks, Jeffrey.
