Fantastic Mr. Fox

Director: Wes Anderson
Year Released: 2009
Rating: 3.0

Intrepid Fox (voiced by George Clooney) and cohorts steal, steal, steal from a trio of gruff chicken farmers, smuggling free supplies back to their underground living quarters. Aside from the technical wonderment - stop-motion animation, I missed you, so! - it's also a delightfully simple (if perhaps a smidge too simple) story about corporate greed and the need to work together to accomplish larger goals. The socialist message couldn't come at a more appropriate time; the 'raised fist' that connects the fox and the (black) wolf is plainly clear (though admittedly peculiar, considering the association Anderson and Baumbach have with the bourgeoisie).
