Polish film posters

I have more film posters than available wall space and yet still I can't seem to stop adding to my collection. One of my favourites is the Polish poster for Once Upon A Time In America which currently resides in my hall. Movie posters from Poland tend to be much more graphic and dynamic than those from other countries and, as such, are becoming highly collectable as works of art. The Guardian has a preview of Cinéphilia West's exhibition of Polish film posters. Here are a few of my favourites from their selection.

Blade Runner.

The Shining.

Eyes Wide Shut.

Did you read in EMPIRE about the Jodorowsky/DUNE exhibition?

I shall definitely take a look at that site when I'm back.

I've glanced at the Empire feature but not read it yet. The illustrations looked great, though.
