The aesthetic conjured by art directors Vitar and Vini Wolf is entirely its own creation, fluidly rotating from shadowed urban claustrophobia to blazing kaleidoscopic hellscapes, with secondary forms and backdrops flickering and shape-shifting...
The animation is equal parts digital, graphic and oil-painting-based, creating a surreal and hypnotizing landscape, while the main narrative thread offers plenty of real-world metaphors without condescending to kiddie sentimentality.
Some parts of the film have an intentionally distorted ugliness to them, but so much more of it is just absolutely mesmerizing.
What makes it stand out among this year's animated films is the underlying philosophical themes which will spur conversations.
The themes of the film are timeless and universal enough that such a direct comparison to the contemporary world isn't particularly necessary.
There's a little science fiction, a lot of fantasy, and a surprisingly potent allegory for how we've forgotten that our strength as a species was always a byproduct of empathy and compassion.
Tito and the Birds is a rather uninspired entry, an allegory so blatant in its intent that it's difficult to imagine who'd find it satisfactory.
There are cute and silly moments, but this is also a very smart and timely work of animated cinema.
