“We all are -- him especially -- but there's something kind of fantastic about that, isn't there?” — Mrs Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox is a 2009 stop motion animated comedy film directed by Wes Anderson, starring an ensemble cast of George Clooney, Marilyn Streep, Jason Schwartzman and more. The film follows an urbane fox who cannot resist returning to his farm raiding ways and then must help his community survive the farmers' retaliation.
This is without a doubt the greatest animated film I've ever seen. Even better than The Incredibles. One of the reasons why is the cinematography. Look, out of all the claymation animated movie I've seen, this is the one that has a great cinematography. Also, claymation is probably the most underrated way to animate.
Overall, Fantastic Mr Fox is a masterpiece. Not only in their respective genre, no, but also in the director's filmography in general. What a great movie to start the year with.
Final Verdict | A+
