Fantastic Mr. Fox
”If what I think is happening is happening, it better not be.” spoken by Meryl Streep in the 2009 animated comedy film Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Different and eccentric, Fantastic Mr. Fox is definitely one of my favourite animated films of all time. Its offbeat humour, interesting characters, whimsical soundtrack, old-school animation technique as well as touching story results in a warm-hearted and hilarious adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic. The moody adolescent son, alone, is enough reason to give this film a look-see. Also, expect to be saying “cuss” a lot after watching this film. Fantastic Mr. Fox is charming as hell and deserves attention.
A taste of the delightful soundtrack: Kristofferson’s Theme
