Footnote [Blu-ray] (Sous-titres français) <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Shlomo Bar-Aba
There's lots going on screen between father and son. In life too, but this film has it by the boatloads. So much so that it sometimes gives the feature an, at times, unnecessary weight. Its ending may also be a bit hard to digest for more mainstream audiences used to the formula of "let's wrap this movie all nice and pretty" because there really isn't an ending.

The story was amazing, the acting VERY much accurate, mixing the cartoon characters with humans (though not a new concept), felt so perfect. It is none other than a hybrid between a cartoon crashing a thriller-noir film... both having a brilliant influence on each other. The humor part truly makes the film feel lighter. Credits must be given to Christopher Lloyd's chilling portrayal of Judge Doom and Bob Hoskin's Eddie Valliant... both are great and deliver top performances. Lloyd made me forget about his sympathetic Doc Brown and clearly enjoyed the role, giving a dark, moody and retained character… Read more
