[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...

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

Filmmaker Erik Sharkey pays tribute to prolific movie poster artist Drew Struzan in this documentary featuring interviews with such luminaries as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Frank Darabont, and Guillermo del Toro, each of whom has previously commissioned the artist to immortalize their films in poster form.
