About the Movie
For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and creating the enduring I love NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser's remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT. From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men. Artfully directed by first-time filmmaker Wendy Keys, the film glances into everyday moments of Glaser's personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, as well as the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: May leave you with the impression that the spirit of modern New York was conjured out of thin air by its subject.
Fresh: Docu splendidly focuses on the artist but gives shorter shrift to the art itself.
Fresh: It's a pleasant, largely anecdotal portrait.
Rotten: Diverting as Glaser is being retrospective, it's so much more interesting -- not to mention truer to his achievement -- watching him being creative.
