This is the film poster for “Pulp Fiction”. The style of the poster looks old and worn as there are rips and creases on the edges on the poster. This gives a vintage feel to poster.  The first thing the audience is drawn to when looking at the poster is the title. This is because it is in bold capital letters and also the yellow on red contrast each other making it stand out. The women on the front of the poster is of a seductive women holding a cigarette with her wrist tilted which is symbolic of sexual body language  The gun is also connoting her to be a dangerous character . The cigarette shows her to also have an additive personality. The gun suggests her to be a villain and connotes why she is dressed in black symbolizing death. The facial expression of the female is very serious. Her red lipstick and eyebrows show she wants to express that she is a provocative character. Her body language suggests she is waiting for a men’s attention. The titled lampshade and the blind down are all there for a reason. The lampshade lights up her face in the dark room, the blinds down suggests privacy either for sexual reasons or violent reasons.
