The Coen Brothers released the poster for their upcoming film Burn After Reading (trailer here).  The retro style poster is an obvious homage to legendary poster designer Saul Bass.  Obvious to anyone who’s not a total idiot, anyway.  Honestly, if you couldn’t tell that was a Saul Bass homage you should probably just kill yourself.  Or at least send all your friends a bouquet of flowers for ever deigning to hang out with you.  They should all be recommended for sainthood.

Also important to note: An "homage" is an optical phenomenon that occurs when a gay man is walking through the desert and sees a vision of a shirtless, strapping young man who’s not really there.
