Directed by Graham Annable & Anthony Stacchi

I love the worlds that Laika creates. There’s so much life in every frame and every movement. They never treat their audiences like children, even though it’s their main audience demographic. Whilst Boxtrolls doesn’t have quite the same heart that Paranorman (one of my favourite animated films) had, the film still succeeds in creating memorable sequences and characters that make you wonder why we even bother with live-action films anymore.
