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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Hardcore Fans will DEFINITELY LOVE THIS
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.
