Reel Snippet – Dear Mr. Watterson

Dear Mr. Watterson is a heartwarming and emotional reflection on the legendary comic strip Calvin and Hobbes and its ever-growing impact. As an avid Calvin and Hobbes fan for as long as I can remember, it drudged up many old feelings, from wonder at the amazing art to sadness as the film discussed the famous final strip. Even the more informative selections about the artistic influences on the strip and Watterson’s refusal to license his creations were packed full of emotions and made you empathize with the man, even though you hadn’t met him. Like the comic strip itself, Dear Mr. Watterson fills you with a special kind of wonder and comes highly recommended from someone who doesn’t particularly care for documentaries. Just get ready to yearn for a stuffed tiger to clutch when “the feels” hit.
