Excellent. This documentary carries a message that redeems much of what global advertising fails to do, which is mainly to connect us with something artful and truthful, something that joins us in the journey as opposed to assaulting us along the way. The individuals interviewed were thoughtful and subtle in their explorations and it took the greater part of the film for them to reveal the beliefs that drive them and some few others in their profession to success. I feel their message applies to whatever path one walks through life: if you wish to live a meaningful life and do meaningful work, you have to retain the courage continually to reconnect your life and work with creative and truthful intent. Thank you for this inspiring film!

Upbeat, rosy-hued take on marketing. Refreshing and fun, though not extremely depthy or provocative. Argues that advertising, done right, rises to the level of art, and even at times, activism.

You will see advertising in a whole new light after watching this. It is a very frank look at the advertising business and what goes on behind the glossy, colorful in your face ad campaigns we know today - cussing included. Very well put together, very well directed.

Great to see the real life Mad Men (and women) talk about some of the greatest ad campaigns ever. Lots of interesting facts interspersed throughout. Highly recommend.

This doc focuses on a few of the "old guard" of advertising. While ostensibly about the occupation as a whole, it dwells on these men and their reminiscences a little too long at the expense of exploring some creative or otherwise valuable executions.

It's a series of interviews about how older ad people feel about ads. Not much more to it.

Everyone who wants to go into advertising should watch this.

The ad world is about so much more than simply selling s***.

Creativity to grab the consumer is the message. Very interesting to see some of the major creative ad people and their work.

Art & Copy was a very interesting documentary that really highlights the greatest ads in recent time. I think that marketing majors will especially like this film.
