Dir. Brad Bird (1999). Set at the dawn of the space race and predicated on a sci-fi mythology of sputniks, spooks, and shelter drills, Brad Bird's brilliantly executed first feature suggests the cartoon remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. At once stylized and detailed, jazzy and classic, Bird's animation picks up where Warners and Disney left off in the mid '50s.
