Film #9 of April 2018 Scavenger Hunt
Task #16: A stop motion animated feature.
Oh cuss this was sort of fantastic forgive the pun. Anderson is obviously one of my favorite directors working and I'm glad in 2009 he got out of a normal zone of live action and came to explore what it would be like to adapt one of his favorite stories into an animated feature. It has an incredible voice cast, a swift pace full of nice action and overall it's even charmingly funny! I remember watching this once in high school and loving it instantly. To re-visit it years later and after having seen Isle of Dogs recently, this is top tier of Anderson for me.
The Criterion of this is so beautiful.
