Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★★

Your tractors uprooted my tree. Your posse hunted my family. Your gunmen kidnapped my nephew. Your rat insulted my wife. And you shot off my tail. I'm not leaving here without that necktie.

I can't get over how fantastic Wes Anderson's style is. Not only the gorgeous visuals, but the writing that allows for some of the most well structured and presented jokes in any movie. The outstanding cast truly brings this movie to a whole other life. The choices are spectacular, and they all fill their role superbly. Clooney's the obvious stand out, but Streep, Murray, and Schwartzman (among others) make these characters all the more believable. The reoccurring jokes are far from annoying, and character arcs certainly aren't clichéd. The film as a whole is immensely original, funny, visually gorgeous, and has Wes Anderson written all over it in the best of ways.
