John Sorbie on Polish film posters

John Sorbie on his poster for This Violent Century:

“I was after the strength you see in European movie posters, especially in Poland. The Polish posters are tough stuff. They’re not commercial and they’ve got guts. American movie posters are soft; everybody is in on the solution from the director to the guy who sweeps out the theater.”
