Fifth about The Seventh

Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings: Travis Knight’s film has a very fine story, one that touches some interesting themes; it also has an unusual setting (in the Western world). That, plus the rare animation style (all styles of animation are painstakingly labor-intensive, and we are allowed a glimpse into the process here, which only increases the appreciation for the work), make this a very engaging and thrilling experience. It’s all beautifully designed, from the world to the characters and their costumes. Dario Marianelli’s score is distinctive and a very important piece of the storytelling (also, inspired are the choice and version of the song that plays over the final credits). Voice acting is quite strong; Charlize Theron is able to transmit all the nuances of her character, and Matthew McConaughey is great as the comic relief and more.
