    Loving Vincent

    ★★★★

    This has to be one of the biggest accomplishments in animation in well, forever. Each scene is based off of a van Gogh painting and every frame is hand-crafted using gorgeous oil painting.

It gets a little long-winded at times, but the curveballs keep everyone on the edge of their seats. This is a very satisfying entry in the Star Wars saga.
