Fantastic mr fox

Just watched the fantastic fox and I have to say it is probably one of the most perfect films I’ve ever seem, it’s funny, idiosyncratic, witty, surprising, and genuinely touching. I’m really mad that I didn’t see it before, what was I doing. I liked it so much I didn’t even mind meryl Streep voicing felicity fox. And Jason schwartzman as the son was superb, bratty, and huffy and needy and so insecure.

The animation is perfection as well, stop motion with some gorgeous touches, it was just so well done. I’m gushing I know and if you’ve already seen it you have my permission to tell me to shut up, but if you haven’t you need to see it. Sits up there with the best that aardman, studio ghibli and pixar have to offer..

And the black power salute at the end made me want to stand, lower my head and hold my fist aloft as well. Good times, good film times…
