Fantastic Mr. Fox

Wes Anderson’s stop-motion-animated Roald Dahl adaptation is one for the auteurist in us all: Newspaper-columnist-cum-chicken-stealer Mr. Fox (George Clooney) dresses like his director, drives his family bonkers à la Royal Tenenbaums and even has a Steve Zissou–esque epiphany courtesy of a black-power, fist-raising wolf. The overall sensation is of an artist repeating himself, scaling down his obsessions to empty-vessel miniatures.
