Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: At length, the cheerleading (capped with fawning fanboys at San Diego Comic-Con) becomes a mildly taxing torrent. And Mr. Struzan, while an agreeable presence, is not an especially engrossing speaker. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Aug 15, 2013

Fresh: The Norman Rockwell of movie advertising steps in front of the camera for a long-overdue celebration sure to delight fans and heighten awareness of his legacy. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Aug 16, 2013

Rotten: Though it will play well with genre diehards on video, the sometimes awkwardly shot doc is too fawning and narrow in scope to attract much of a crowd in theaters. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 16, 2013

Fresh: The summary comes when the low-key Struzan offhandedly reveals what he often hears: "Give it your magic." It's all on view here. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Aug 15, 2013

Drew: The Man Behind The Poster A great documentary,

Fantastic Documentary Drew: The Man Behind The Poster is!!! Drew Struzan is one of the great movie poster artist's of all-time. His posters for the Star Wars films , Indiana Jones films , Back To The Future films , Harry Potter films are works of art and modern day classics!!! I saw it on Netflix recently and it is awesome!!

Drew's Art WAS the Movies

You may have not known who he was, but if you've been to the movies in the last 30 years, odds are you are familiar with his work. From Indiana Jones, the Shawshank Redemption, Back to the Future 1-3, to ALL the Star Wars movies (Reissue - Prequels), Drew's art has been the first impression most people have had with the movies. And before that, he was illustrating record album covers for some of the most memorable music of the 80's-90's. Unfortunately in the last 5 years, the movies studios have turned to cropped & photoshopped photographs & are more concerned with selling popcorn than promoting the movies themselves.


This is a lovely documentary of a man who has made a lot of peoples childhood wonderful and how powerful his art was in the movie industry.
