Inspiring Documentary about a Master
27 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Bill Plympton is probably one of the world's most important animators alive. He has been nominated twice to the Academy Awards, and the list of trophies in festivals is nothing less than amazing: more than 30, including the top prize in Annecy four times, between 1998 and 2013. His unique style is an inspiration to young filmmakers that search for beauty, humor and significance on their work.

The documentary 'Adventures in Plymptoons!' gives us the opportunity to find out more about his life and work, filling one's hunger for this real master. Alexia Anastasio, the director, conducts us in a movie that every independent animation lover should watch at lest once, and not only because all data and artist's curious facts. The movie itself is full of jokes that reminds the audience about Plympton's singular style of directing. The interviews both inform and amuse ranging from fans, colleagues and film critics. Excerpts from many of the director's movies are there to be appreciated. And Plympton himself is just as eccentric as admirable.

For sure, an inspiring documentary to every person linked to animation worldwide. A film not to be missed, that proves itself as inspiring as any of the director's animations.
