Fantastic Mr Fox review on Cinemascape

Last week I reviewed Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox on Cinemascape on Eastside 89.7FM. Anderson's loving paean to the golden age of stop motion animation works miracles with Roald Dahl's source material and is a joy to behold from beginning to tail end. The vocal work from the likes of George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray is top draw and Jason Schwartzman is fabulous as Mr Fox's moody teenage son Ash. His performance perfectly sums up the films delirious ethos; this is a classic Wes Anderson film that just happens to be performed by talking, animated foxes. Cussing fantastic!! The show is broadcast around Australia via the Community Radio Network so stay tuned.
