My god, what a gorgeous-looking movie. This just looks so beautiful to me. Maybe it’s the particular style of animation, maybe it’s the fact that I’m a magician in my spare time (when I’m not chained to my computer, being forced to update this site as a gorilla wearing a tutu whips me), but I really think that The Illusionist is going to be spectacular. And hey, maybe it will finally wash away all memory of the bland Edward Norton movie of the same name.
The Illusionist is directed by Sylvain Chomet (of The Triplets of Belleville), based on a screenplay by Jacques Tati, and is set to be released in North America this December!
