"There have been some very worthwhile coffee table books showcasing Struzan’s imagery, but never an industry salute as comprehensive as the documentary 'Drew: The Man Behind the Poster.'”
"This doc is a must-see for fans of Star Wars and Spielberg, and doesn't that include just about everyone?"
"The Norman Rockwell of movie advertising steps in front of the camera for a long-overdue celebration sure to delight fans and heighten awareness of his legacy. While this documentary's theatrical life seems limited, discs of the release could become as collectible as the maestro’s work."
"Drew makes a valid case for the artist as not simply an all-time great, but as a casualty of a business that prizes bottom-line cost management above unique creativity."
