410) Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)

410) Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) Dir: Wes Anderson Date Released: November 2009 Date Seen: November 22, 2009 Rating: 4.25/5

Immaculately executed. My theory is that, darting between this and The Darjeeling Limited, Wes Anderson put more attention and care into this than that tired variation on his familiar theme (perhaps because the film's stop-motion animation formally requires more focus and dedication)? The film's dynamic pacing and inimitably detailed sense of humor slackens off in the film's relatively sluggish penultimate 15 minutes but the rest is very charming.
