Obviously the coolest aspect of Wes Anderson‘s The Fantastic Mr. Fox (20th Century Fox, 11.13) is the stop-motion animation. This is the same technique, of course, used by Merian C. Cooper and Willis O’Brien on King Kong and Ray Harryhausen for his 1950s and ’60s monster movies. It goes with saying that the Eloi, accustomed to the latest super-fluid hard-drive effects, may regard stop-motion as a little too effete and stuck-on-itself. Not me, mind you. I think it’s beautiful. I get it and then some.
