Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet ★★★★

This animated fable, incorporating bits of the philosophical poetry of Kahlil Gibran and bringing in a variety of talented animators (including Joann Sfar, Nina Paley, Bill Plympton, and Tomm Moore) to handle individual segments, feels a little too particulated and abstract as a whole, but many of the pieces are lovely, and the effort and affection for the material and the characters really shows through. This would really be something on a big screen.
