Thumbs up The Illusionist

OK. This is not an anime. But so what? This poignant, chaplinesque tale is the best animated film I have seen in years, and the best movie I have seen from 2010. With hardly any dialog, this movie tells the story of a struggling magician and the girl who believes his magic is real. This is just plain filmmaking at its best. Such detailed attention is given to the animation that even background characters come alive. The Illusionist is a major triumph for director Sylvain Chomet, and it puts the directors of all that computerized crappola to shame.

The Illusionist has just now been released, unfortunately limited, in the US and is currently in theaters. If it is playing in your area, go see it. If it is not playing, picket your local theater!

I forgot to mention, don't leave the theater until after the final credits roll. There is a bit you will miss!
