Went to see Fantastic Mr. Fox this weekend. A beautiful, twisted film, that feels somewhat like a fox-version of the Royal Tenenbaums. The self-centered, certified crazy, and strangely loveable father and the dreamy, artistically inclined, but detached mother that are so completely into each other that they seem more or less interested in raising the children... Resulting in viciously competitive siblings (or cousins in this case) that love each other to pieces and yet, can't stand the sight of each other.
Anderson certainly seems intent on depicting my, ahem, pardon, his family on film. And life is all the better for it.
Go see it - it's worth every fox-minute.
