About the Movie

One man’s wild, lifelong adventure of testing society's boundaries through his subversive art, Far Out Isn’t Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story combines traditional documentary storytelling with original animation culled from seven decades worth of art from the renegade children’s book author and illustrator. Using a palette of 20th century events to paint an artist’s epic yet controversial life story, the film offers a retrospective of Ungerer’s life and art, and ponders the complexities and contradictions of a man who, armed with an acerbic wit, an accusing finger and a razor sharp pencil, gave visual representation to the revolutionary voices during one of the most tantalizing and dramatic periods in American history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Charming animated sequences offer a tantalizing taste of this creator's singular talents, underscoring the grievous wrongs dealt him. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Jun 13, 2013

Fresh: The colorful personality and heterogeneous body of work of French-born illustrator-author Tomi Ungerer is vividly brought to life in docu "Far Out Isn't Far Enough." – Boyd van Hoeij, Variety, Jun 18, 2013

Fresh: 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. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jun 20, 2013

Fresh: Though nobody's citizen, the artist, as this engrossing if somewhat oblique career portrait confirms, is still present. – Michelle Orange, Village Voice, Jun 11, 2013
