Art of the Polish Movie Poster
The Polish movie poster is “an unequivocal . . . triumph of art over commerce, of painting and vision over the bottom line that controls too much of film culture and the art world.” So raves Michael Atkinson in a Believer essay (March-April 2009) deconstructing “one of the great secrets of 20th century pop art.”
The only thing Polish “one sheets” have in common is that their designers were freed from the literal exposition and celebrity worship that dominates the form internationally. The lone rule: Illustrate how the movie makes you feel.
