Fantastic Film


I don't think I ever fully gushed over Fantastic Mr. Fox, but it was probably my favorite movie last year. It's charming and funny with just the right amount of Wes Anderson quirkiness, the music is great, and the detail that went into the miniature sets, characters and Mr. Fox's corduroy suit is astounding. It's out on dvd today. See it or see it again.

There's also a beautiful book on the making of the film, which I think belongs on my coffee table.
