From IMDb: “Salam, an inexperienced young Palestinian man, becomes a writer on a popular soap opera after a chance meeting with an Israeli soldier. His creative career is on the rise – until the soldier and the show’s financial backers disagree about how the show should end, and Salam is caught in the middle.”

Poster Rating: C / C / C / C+ / C+

Review: (#1) It’s dull and uses its space poorly, never filling the void with anything interesting. (#2) It looks like a poster advertising a film one might be forced to watch for a Human Resources training video. (#3) Not far removed from the prior design, this time with a diagonal design. (#4) The structure leaves a lot to be desired. The colors are poorly chosen, but the symbolic situation of the rifle pointed at the protagonist is a compelling decision, but possibly an unintentional one. (#5) Too much blank space, though with a pleasing fill color. The structure and overlap is rather cheap-looking.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: The trailer wants so much to be funny, but it never sells that humor to the audience with any authenticity.
