The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore Review

This is a film that is propelled with great technical achievements. The animation is absolutely mesmerizing and almost groundbreaking with its use of different styles of animation. The score is also really beautiful and it just lifts the whole short. However, the story I never found particularly interesting and it was too abstract in my opinion. It was also rarely easy to understand and its use of silent prose could have been better put to use. But it is still a moving story, no matter how executed it is. It is thematically rich and rather poignant, while being inspirational in the end. And I really liked the animation of books which is revolutionary in my book as it is really breathtaking to behold and the character design is really well done. It is an exquisitely animated film that has a flawed, but a moving plot nevertheless.

My Rating – 3.7
