    Leslie Iwerks' "The Pixar Story" charts the company's rise to infinity and beyond, so to speak, and who better to chronicle the journey than the Oscar-nominated granddaughter of animation pioneer Ub Iwerks? Though a talking-heads retrospective by nature, pic boasts not only all the right heads (from the three Pixar principals -- John Lasseter, Ed Catmull and Steve Jobs -- to Michael Eisner and honorary godfather George Lucas) but also plenty of animated eye candy from Pixar itself, including early shorts and concept art. Result makes for a rosy inhouse portrait, sure to interest fans, especially down the road on DVD.

    Re: 'The Pixar Story' Documentary trade review

    I'm both intrigued and put off by this doc. Sure, it'd be great to hear Lasseter, Catmull and Jobs spout off about their baby, but the whole idea comes off as pretty self-serving (notwithstanding the reviewer's insistance that it isn't).

    As much as I like most of Pixar's films, The Pixar Story smacks of a vanity project not unlike Disney's The Reluctant Dragon, which is mostly forgettable to all but the most hardcore Disney fans.
