Though Ben Whitesell personally classifies these cinema-inspired creations as minimalist, despite the fine detail of his work. Viewers are no doubt looking for a little more technical and visual effort in the work of aspiring graphic artists, and that’s exactly what Whitesell has delivered here.

Among the many films featured in Ben Whitesell’s ‘Minimalz - Re-Imagined Movie Posters’ series are Cape Fear, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, The Shining, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Fantasia and Batman. Within each one of his interpretations are elements or scenes from these movies that have been rendered in their simplest form. Whitesell’s most effective piece is the one in which he types out the haunting ramblings of the movie’s central villain, Jack Torrance.
