Sweet, funny, breezy stop motion animation flick based on the Roald Dahl novel. A fox/father decides to settle down,
stop stealing chickens and become a newspaper reporter, But then, hitting a mid life crisis, he plots one last raid...
It's always delightful, and very well voice-acted by the likes of George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Michael Gambon.
Yet, for me, there was a bit of a deeper layer missing, when compared with the best of Wes Anderson's live action work.
This wasn't a film that moved me deeply, or made me think. Although it did throughly amuse me with an enjoyable
tale, which is really more than enough. But somehow, as an Anderson fan. I wanted that last step from very good to great.
Still I applaud his bravery in taking this on, and the sly intelligence he brings to it.
