Art & Copy

Usually when you think about advertising, you feel a bit disgusted at the way we are targeted by the “ad men.” They manipulate us into buying things we don’t need, with money we don’t have. They make things that are not good for us sound indispensable. And everywhere we turn we are bombarded by their pitches. So going into Art & Copy, I my expectations for a documentary about the ad world were very low. Imagine my surprise then when I was treated to a fascinatingly wonderful homage to the men and women who made some of the most iconic ads in the late 20th century.
