Gallery: Great Showdowns in Film History

The pop culture-obsessed folks at Los Angeles’s Gallery1988 have done it again. We’re madly in love with Scott C’s new exhibition, The Great Showdown, at their Melrose location. The show, which runs through the 26th, features over 200 tiny watercolors depicting film’s essential match-ups, from highbrow stuff like Citizen Kane to cult classics such as Eraserhead to wonderful B-movies including Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Barbarella. (Lost fans may remember a similar series Scott C did to commemorate that show’s greatest tête-à-têtes.) See ten of our favorite showdown paintings after the jump and click over to Flavorpill for more info on visiting the exhibition.
