Drew(ing) effort
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

The work that goes into poster or rather went into the posters, is great. And the movie/documentary is giving us one of the best that ever drew anything (no pun intended). It does help that while not a man of big words, the man behind the posters, is a very likable one. And he is also very funny too.

There are a lot of famous people who comment on the work and we get a lot of background information. We also get how the man came to the business, how he climbed the ladder. All this might sound trivial, but it is really nicely told with a joke thrown in there for good measure. You really feel like you got to know the guy, after watching this. A real nice homage and a good documentary
