Mary and Max and It’s Such a Beautiful Day for how the most simplistic stick figures and puppets can draw such an emotional response. Fantastic Mr. Fox for its attention to detail and cracking humor. Pom Poko, Persepolis and Grave of the Fireflies for their humanism. Alice and The Pain and the Pity for their anarchy.”
