Mr. Struzan, a painter, used his nondigital medium to adapt photographic images and imbue them with a texture and polish that often make a production appear more magical than it is.

[V]iewers will appreciate spending time with this cheerful, unassuming man, and will enjoy seeing the artist acknowledged by celebrities who owe him so much...

A movie that celebrates the work, but at the expense of contemporary John Alvin, who isn't just a glaring omission from the story, but in a couple of instances is actively obliterated from it. Full Review

The demure, self-effacing Struzan undermines Sharkey's strategy by insisting his art is only the product of a mundane creative process. Full Review

Struzan's posters are themselves integral parts of the movies they represent, capturing a thrilling sense of adventure, mystery, comedy, and emotion to the point that they literally define the essence of their source material.
