It was joy to see last weekend the beautifully crafted stop-motion animation, Fantastic Mr. Fox! I was captivated by the colors and the amount of detail. This movie felt handmade…from Mrs. Fox wardrobe to the red delicious sparking apples. It was a delight to see the water splashes, the wind moving the puppet’s fur and all the waves of fabric explosions.
