I don't know why, but this poster for Carnal Knowledge (1971) makes me feel filthy.
What is this? I seriously thought that this Casablanca (1942) poster was a joke. I realized though that without that ridiculous speech bubble the poster would have been pretty awesome.
And this looks like my seven year old niece has drawn. Blindfolded.
"Kasia Ballou" is of course Cat Ballou (1965).
Chinatown (1974). Remember the scene where Polanski slits Jack Nicholson's nose open? That was the highlight of the film, according to the Poles.
Pretty fair, pretty cool Citizen Kane (1941) poster. But they somehow managed to give Orson Welles the "pedo smile".
Look at this poster and read "Rozmowa" out loud to yourself. Would you ever think that this is the poster for The Conversation (1974)?
I showed this one before on the blog, but in case you missed it: the coolest poster ever for Dirty Dancing (1987)!
Wasn't The Elephant Man (1980) freaky enough looking? Oh no, Poland will stop for nothing! (Except for the Germans '39.) They want you to have really bad nightmares.
Remember in The Exorcist (1973), where the snake... no, the TREE climbs up on the SNAKE, right after Max von Sydow shouts out "The power of Christ compels you!" for the first time?
More freaky (but mostly weird) Polish film posters in part 3 - up and coming!
