Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★½

Cuss! This movie is brilliant! Wes Anderson is easily among the very best directors working today, and this is an amazing piece of film to prove it. Though I think Moonrise Kingdom is a better film, this shows his great skills in visuals and writing excellently. The story is better than most at balancing humor and drama. It is a clever, witty, hilarious comedy, yet an honest and heartwarming family drama with real issues at its center. There are so many scenes that are compelling, memorable, smart, and beautiful. It's probably my favorite claymation film at this point, though a rewatch would probably cement it. (Sorry, Kubo and Coraline. You've been beaten). This is without a doubt George Clooney's best performance, and the rest of the cast, especially Meryl Streep and Jason Schwartzman, give excellent voice performances. This made me so much more excited for Isle of Dogs, and I can't wait to check out more of Anderson's filmography.
