Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
In more recent years, animator Ub Iwerks has been given more attention, especially with the resurfacing of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in media such as the Epic Mickey games and the Walt Disney Treasures release of the silent Oswald shorts which are still in existence (save for Hungry Hoboes, which was only recently rediscovered). However, for years he was an unsung artist, his influence on the origins of Mickey Mouse and animation and special effects at large rarely discussed.
This feature-length documentary does a fantastic job giving viewers the details on Iwerks the artist and the man. We see his childhood and the impact of his father's desertion of the family to his heyday as an animator in the 20s and 30s to his involvement in the special effects realm with some of the 1940s Disney features and even Hitchcock's The Birds (1963).
A must-see for animation geeks.
