OMG Posters! & Archive & The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds Back when it was being promoted, some of the people behind Inglourious Basterds teamed up with Upper Playground to create a number of commissioned pieces based on the film.

Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy.
