Truly Definitive

What can be said other than what the plot says: This is the definitive documentary about Ray Harryhausen. Aside from interviews with the great man himself, shot over five years, there are also interviews and tributes from Vanessa Harryhausen, Tony Dalton, Randy Cook, Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippet, Peter Lord, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, Rick Baker, John Landis, Ken Ralston, Guillermo Del Toro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Robert Zemeckis, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg and many more.

What more can you say than that? If you know and love Harryhausen or dislike him (if this is possible) or have never heard of him, there is no end to the line of folks making movies that can tell you his influence and how many of the films today could not have existed without him in one way or another.
