Late Tuesday Tease: THE FANTASTIC MR FOX, Off-Putting Animation.

There’s something horrifying about the animation. It looks like they resurrected the ghosts of Rankin/Bass and tortured the poor basterds into poltergeists. Is there a reason Mr. Fox intermittently sounds like he was recorded in a tin can? Is that the only place Clooney would work? Oh, so you answered that question.

It’s understandable to strive for a style that’s different from all the rest. Off-putting animation, however, is not how to define yourself as a director.

But we digress.

The dialogue is funny. The story is a Roald Dahl work(Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Witches to name a few). Felicity Dahl, Roald’s wife, is on board with Anderson’s choices.

*sigh*

You’re standing on the shoulder of a giant, Wes Anderson. Let’s hope that odd animation is the only thing we must ignore.
