The Polish are better at movie posters than anybody

Regular readers of this space may have noticed I am a huge fan of movie poster art. For some reason, Poland makes the most striking film posters of any country in the world, although they make every single movie look like a demented and nightmarish horror film.

It's kind of comical. For example, here is the American one-sheet for 1989's Weekend at Bernie's:


 Here is the Polish poster for the same movie:


 The U.K. Guardian has posted a preview of an exhibition of Polish film one-sheets opening this Friday in London's Cinephilia West. I have posted a couple of my favorites below. Go here to check out their full preview. For more awesome examples of Polish movie poster art, go here  and here and especially here.

Wow, those really are cool-looking. There's a niche market in that for some art dealer.

The last movie poster is epic! I think it would look good as a wall graffiti. I'm fixing up my loft apartment next week, and I think I still have an empty wall as a canvas for that.
