Fantastic Mr. Fox

November 3, 2009

Fantastic Mr. Fox is Wes Anderson’s own private imaginarium filled with delinquent, wise-cracking critters. It’s a work of unfettered imagination- entirely charming and written with a rapier wit. It’s a little overlong, and by the time you realise how much it deviates from the original story, it threatens to jeopardise the additional spurts of originality- such as the introduction of extra characters and the hysterical societal mechanisms of their world. Nonetheless, it’s another case of a cutesy-yet-perilous kids’ film ultimately being written for adults and, on those grounds, its a success.
