Filmmaker Wes Anderson has solidified himself as a director with a very distinct style, which is not something that many directors can say. He continues to evolve for sure, but as evidenced by Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, he’s essentially perfected his style to a T. But for his next feature, Anderson might be keen on pushing himself a bit further, as he’s mulling over the possibility of returning to the world of stop-motion animation. If there was ever a director whose style was perfectly attuned to the stop-motion animation aesthetic, it’s Anderson. His 2009 stop-motion film Fantastic Mr. Fox is an absolute delight, and doesn’t stand out as an oddity in his filmography; it feels perfectly in step with his oeuvre, and even ranks towards the very top in terms of quality.
