Episode 84

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Published on: 25th February, 2021

Roald Dahl quite famously hated most of the film adaptations of his famous books, but I think he'd quite like this one. Wes Anderson takes his keen idiosyncratic eye and took Fantastic Mr. Fox and made it, well, fantastic!

From the juddery stop-motion animation, to the anachronistic American sounding heroes, these anthropomorphic animals have hearts, minds and relatable insecurities.

It's quote-unquote cussing fantastic.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Fantastic Mr. Fox!
