    This is a great documentary on the master of film posters, Drew Struzan. It delves into his work for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, the Goonies, the Muppets, Blade Runner, The Thing, and Harry Potter, among others. It's got interviews with the best people in the film industry too, like Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Guillermo del Toro, and Michael J. Fox.

    It even looks
    into his work for del Toro's Hellboy films and Pan's Labyrinth, and how while del Toro adored them, the studio rejected them in favour of some worse-looking photographic posters. It goes through Struzan's career wonderfully, and ends up exposing the film industry and how greedy it's become, but ends on a pleasant note. Expand

    Although it offers some insight into his distinctive technique, it could have gone much further. But viewers will appreciate spending time with this cheerful, unassuming man, and will enjoy seeing the artist acknowledged by celebrities who owe him so much

    The director commissioned Struzan to paint the one-sheet for his debut, “Sexina: Popstar P.I.,” and while this sophomore effort is no masterpiece, it’s far more deserving of Struzan’s talent.

    A colorful account of the life and art of the recently retired Drew Struzan, whose amazing poster work from the 1970s onward still delights cineastes and casual observers.
