Fifth about The Seventh


Frankenweenie: the inspiration of this story is obvious, and it is, for the most part, a nice little re-imagining of the story. As this is a Tim Burton’s film, it has the expected mix of bizarre and slightly perverse, which nevertheless feel a bit out of place. Visually, this is an interesting case: while the style is similar to what Burton has showed before previously, the shot selection, camera movements and to some extent the lighting feel “real” (as in live-action films), therefore more interesting than the average animation. That’s likely the result of a live-action director working with stop-motion technique (which is, after all, shot in the real world.)
