Fantastic Mr. Fox
DIRECTOR: WES ANDERSON
CAST: GEORGE CLOONEY, MERYL STREEP, JASON SCHWARTZMAN, BILL MURRAY
Anderson does Dahl, a hand-in-glove fit of sensibilities if ever there was one. This charmingly homespun stop-motion production isn’t just Wes Anderson’s lone venture into animation, it’s the closest thing he’s done to a pure genre piece—a stylish, taut heist picture, with retired chicken thief Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney), fed up with domesticity, deciding to take one last job, and bringing down a world of trouble on his family in the process.
