Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story Reviews

Ungerer is certainly an irrepressible force, but beyond his surreal erotica getting him blacklisted from picture books in the early '70s, his life isn't very dramatic, and Bernstein's film pads it with historical footage and precious animations.

Does every semi-famous person deserve a full-length documentary about them?

The art floats and comes to life, animated and illustrating the flights of fantasy that continue unabated at [Ungerer] studio.

Brad Bernstein's documentary proves that Ungerer's legacy is as historically significant as it is artistically.

The subject is more fascinating than the documentary about him, in this case.

Easily the most wildly fascinating artist profiled in a documentary since Crumb.

Ungerer's ice-blue eyes, sharp tongue and palpable enjoyment in shocking the bourgeoisie make him an engaging narrator.

Ungerer's art is interesting, and so is he.

As provocative as the art is - whether G-rated or R - the artist is even more interesting. Still sketching, still engaged, and, as the film closes, still searching for the outer reaches of enough.

A formidable creative force fueled by massive contradictions, Ungerer is a kind of self-analytical shrink here. Conflicted yet inspired by identity issues, political injustice art, and a weirdly beloved treasure trove of headless sex slave barbie dolls.

Though nobody's citizen, the artist, as this engrossing if somewhat oblique career portrait confirms, is still present.

Children's book author, antiwar agitator and pornographer for the carriage trade, Tomi Ungerer is one of the more interesting artists of the past half-century. Be thankful that this documentary captures his essence.

In 1958, Ungerer's picture book "Crictor" featured an unlikely hero, a boa constrictor, and the usual anodyne pabulum served up to bored kids would no longer do.
