Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)

DF Int One Sheet

An urbane fox cannot resist returning to his farm raiding ways and then must help his community survive the farmers’ retaliation. (IMDb)

Every scene is like a delectably detailed diorama, brought to life by endlessly creative animation (see the digging and flood sequences; the “x” eyes), perfect voice acting, and marvelous music (even the most random of moments gain tear-jerking significance with this aesthetic: see Rat’s redemption, the wolf fist-pump), while a simple story showcases remarkable characterization (see the angsty Ash) and thoughtful drama (see Mr. and Mrs. Fox’s standoff) alongside its heaps of quirky humour.

9.2/10
