Far Out Is Not Far Enough

Rating = B+

This is a documentary about Tomi Ungerer, a renowned children's book author-illustrator and author-illustrator of erotic books for adults. Ungerer likes to invent slogans and the title of the movie is one of his slogans. He also claims Expect the Unexpected. My favorite is Give Your Destiny and Destination. Ungerer was at one time a highly successful children's book author. then he started doing his adult books and after a while his children's book publishers dropped him. Twenty or 25 years later, he began to do new children's books and received great acclaim for a new book and his life's work in this genre. It is a fascinating story, and the graphics of the movie are wonderful.
