Critic Reviews for Mary and Max
While perhaps it doesn't fully sustain its 90-odd-minute running time, Mary and Max is a moving celebration of oddness and friendship.
The mixture of artistic sophistication and emotional crudeness cancel each other out.
In a perverse and often immature way, it forthrightly deals with mature issues of love, friendship, forgiveness and mental health. It requires a mature audience, but an audience nonetheless.
Clearly a labor of love, but one destined perhaps to be loved by a very select few.
Audience Reviews for Mary and Max
A beautiful and heartbreaking claymation about depression, loneliness and friendship, crafted with a gorgeous production design, a wonderful direction and a bittersweet story that is so profoundly touching it is hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't be moved by it.
A wonderfully sweet and beautiful movie!
As good as anything Pixar has made in terms of emotional power, but a lot less known. What a shame. Mary and Max is one of the best animated movies I have ever watched, and one of the most heart-wrenching movies I have ever seen, period.
