Film: Fantastic Mr. Fox

“From director Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums) comes FANTASTIC MR. FOX, based on the book by Roald Dahl. Featuring the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman.”

My Thoughts:
Imma keep this short and sweet. This movie was so beautiful. Omg! I could not get over the animation and art direction and the quirky costumes for each character. If that was all, and literally there was no sound, I would probs still watch it. I was totally INraptured by their movement and the animators cinematography.

But, more than that, the animation totally worked specifically with the writing, which of course was amazingly clever and fun and SASS-tastic. Wes Anderson, you can wear whatever color uggs you want, and still be cool. Just so particularly, cleverly Wes Anderson. I thought plot was a bit here and there, but I think that kinda goes with the Wes Anderson ride, and I am totally cool with that. Conclusion: Lovely with spice. :)

Film: Bill Cunningham New York (Documentary)

“Bill Cunningham is the street-fashion and society chronicler for The New York Times. After 50 years of cycling the streets of the Big Apple with his camera, snapping the great, the good and the stylish, Bill Cunningham is now in front of the lens in this loving and intimate portrait of a remarkable man and a chronicler of a city.”

My thoughts:
This film was so great and definitely for a compassionate of art and fashion. It was a not-uncomfortably-intrusive and fascinating study into an unusual man’s life (unusual man, yet an every-man). Plus, a really great reminder of why you should bother dressing interestingly and why you should bother trying new things.

The film also gives an honest insight into the experience of being in a profession that you love (not striving for a position you love, but actually what life is like after you get it), and gives an insight into life in New York city. Despite his love of flamboyancy in clothing, I left feeling that Bill gave the viewer permission to not be ashamed to look perhaps too much in-depth into something others may see as ordinary or uninteresting.
