Great documentary about legendary movie poster artist Drew Struzan
8 January 2014 | by (Tampa) – See all my reviews

Movie poster artist Drew Struzan has created many of the most iconic movie posters of the last few decades, and "Drew: The Man Behind the Poster" is a loving tribute and examination of his long career. Composed mainly of interviews with the various actors, producers, and directors whose movies Struzan made posters for, as well as unobtrusive narration that keeps the story going. Notable are interviews with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, who talk about Struzan''s posters for Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, ET, and Back to the Future.

Drew Struzan comes off as a humble, extremely talented, and very nice guy who had a rough start in life but truly made his mark on movie history.

This documentary was recently made available on Netflix, and I highly recommend it--well made, and interesting to movie buffs, Star Wars fans, and even people who have never heard of Struzan.
