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

...will leave an audience feeling both lightened and illuminated.

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.

May 22, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.
