Diverting as Glaser is being retrospective, it's so much more interesting -- not to mention truer to his achievement -- watching him being creative.

Collaborators testify to the continuing influence of Glaser, now almost 80, but seeing is believing in director Wendy Keys' pleasantly conversational documentary. Expect to mutter "He made that too?" at least a dozen times.

A breezy look at the man somebody says "may be the best-known graphic artist in the world."

May leave you with the impression that the spirit of modern New York was conjured out of thin air by its subject.

What elevates the film to something more than a talking-heads documentary is the rapport established between Mr. Glaser and Ms. Keys on a project they both saw as a visual and verbal love letter to New York City.

a wonderfully intelligent portrait of a surprisingly verbal visual artist. At 80, Glaser is a wise and ever engaged advocate for improving the worldthrough stylistic invention.

Unfortunately, the portrait first-time director Wendy Keys paints of the 80-year-old is more about myth building than anything else.

An illuminating, compelling and well-focused documentary. Just like Milton Glaser's artworks, it concurrently informs and delights.

Even casual filmgoers should be intrigued, while film buffs and cineastes will find the doc's inside-show biz stories a real treat.

The quantity and depth of Glaser's work is awesome

May 21, 2009 Full Review Source:

Keys succeeds in limning an engaging portrait of an artist and mentor who's spent a lifetime affirming the power of art to inform and delight, and, if he can help it, effect positive social change.
