Stop-motion animation filmed at half-speed, it's like a living pop-up book. Landscapes resemble carpet remnants and fire extinguishers plume what looks like cotton candy. Wes Anderson's team boundlessly, buoyantly fill each frame with fine flourishes.
Wes Anderson's stop-motion animation is perhaps the purest distillation yet of his nerveless twee cinema of quirk; it economically summarizes his themes of family and outsiderism through remarkably detailed models of forest creatures.
Although funny and suspenseful, Wes Anderson's style may be a little too obscure to carry over to the family film genre, but that certainly won't stop those of us who grew up with the story from getting nostalgic.
The film incorporates all the quiet, improvisational style, dry humor delivery as found in other Anderson pictures, but combined with the proletarian fluidity of the animation; the result for audiences is a gleeful trance-like holiday.
