Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★★

This was the perfect choice to revisit after watching a bad film. 11th viewing, still perfect.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is a delightful, brilliantly animated heist caper that is amusing and entertaining on every level. From the pitch perfect voice work, the brilliant and classy stop-motion animation, the bizarre and snappy humor, the zany plot, the lovable characters; This is a gem of a animated film. There's barley anything wrong with it! In a sense it's like a Tarantino film in it's execution, but it's (mostly) acceptable for all ages. I have so much respect for directors who think outside the box like Wes Anderson.

What could have been a simple cash-in is a memorable tale with so much care taken to create a stop-motion film, and that is commendable enough. A film I dearly enjoy and I could watch again and again!
