Tarsem Channels Dali

The Fall, Tarsem Singh's follow-up feature to The Cell, is finally hitting theaters after a two-year delay. The poster art features a pair of eyes peering through a rectangular mask, with a nose and mouth suggested in the combined imagery of a butterfly, flower petals and the Taj Mahal's silhouette. The layout reminds me of Salvador Dali's 1935 painting, "Face of Mae West (Usable as a Surrealist Apartment)."
