Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★★

"Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. One fat, one short, one lean. Those horrible crooks, so different in looks, were nonetheless equally mean."

Here, the combination of Wes Anderson's nostalgic picture book aesthetic and Mackinnon & Saunders's lithe stop-motion puppetry fits Roald Dahl's source material so perfectly that it almost feels like a snapshot of the author's very thoughts. The voice acting is inspired, the visual gags are inventive, the action is hair-raisingly exciting and the tone is as warm as a glowing hearth on a blowy autumn day - while sipping Bean's cider, naturally.
