Pure brilliance!!!
8 September 2007 | by jevriesSee all my reviews

I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E....the man Pavel Klushantsev, without a doubt, has served many, many filmmakers very well creating stunning visual effects for his science fiction movies. It's obvious that Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas and the likes used these techniques for their movies and are known for basically inventing these effects. It is very, very, unfortunate that Pavel Klushantsev didn't receive the recognition during his live he so well deserved. I truly hope that after seeing this great documentary people will recognize the incredible talent of Pavel Klushantsev and will start to see his movies and credit him as one of the most important man behind science fiction movies visual effects.
