You may not know his name, but you know his work. He has created some of the most iconic movie posters of all time including Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. His paintings seem to effortlessly evoke the spirit of each movie that he works on. He’s Drew Struzan, and he was profiled in the insightful, entertaining documentary, “Drew: The Man Behind the Poster.”
I realized that I knew very little about Drew. I was pleased to see that he’s a very down-to-earth, humble guy. He speaks candidly about his life and his work, and an all star line up of directors and actors gush about Drew’s posters including George Lucas, Frank Darabont, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford. Drew is now semi-retired from movie work and is focusing his own original art.
A lot of the documentaries that I watch are, in some way, about movies. If you can say the same thing about yourself, then I wholeheartedly recommend “Drew: The Man Behind the Poster.”
