James White’s Drive Poster
By James White, aka Signalnoise. Check out his other work, which I think can be best described as “synthwave.”
(Via Tools & Toys.)
Previously: Drive, There Are No Clean Getaways, Self-Denial, Art of the Title: My Bodyguard (1980) and Drive (2011), Don’t Ask Him Why.

Da 5 Bloods
Trailer for Spike Lee’s new film, which is coming to Netflix on June 12. Lee’s films cycle on and off Netflix. Currently streaming: She’s Gotta Have It (1986), School Daze (1988), Malcolm X (1992), which I think is his masterpiece, Get on the Bus (1996), and Inside Man (2006). Also streaming: Roger Guenveur Smith’s one-man show Rodney King, directed by Lee.

Though it offers little in the way of escapism, the point it makes about America — namely, that we’re a country where consequences are unevenly distributed — is more relevant than ever.
Check out the whole thing.
