Film description

All hail the fantastic Mr. Wes. Anderson is one of the most original voices of American comedy in over a dozen years. His character comedy has no obvious punch lines or catchy one-liners, it is one of the most difficult and alternative genres, relegated to a niche and intelligent audience.

At base, every Anderson film is a drama – unhappy, lost, frustrated, and often un-empathetic people seek and fail to find comfort in each other. However, the production design, acting, strangely stiff mannerisms, music, shot framing, and absurd situations turn each film into a tragicomedy. Anderson’s films prove the old adage that comedy is tragedy plus time, or, in this case, tragedy plus timing. Andersen’s comedic timing is peculiar and hilarious.

Peculiar is probably the best description of The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Anderson’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book. It is the story of a midlife crisis in stop-motion animation. The effect is both original and familiar: the tragicomic themes are classic Anderson, while their transfer into the animal kingdom and unusual animation makes the film seem from another time. Critics have called the film a ‘stop-motion Bergman,’ a pointless reference because in Mr. Fox, Anderson speaks with his unique voice.
