My reaction
Synopsis: the life of a strange man
How I saw it: on video a couple times, most recently yesterday (Mary and Max DVD bonus feature)
Concept: Indifferent.
Story: Indifferent.
Characters: Good.
Dialog: Great.
Pacing: Good.
Cinematography: Good.
Special effects/design: Good.
Acting: Good.
Music: Indifferent.
Subjective Rating: 9/10 (One of my favorites). On one hand, watching this immediately after Mary and Max (which does similar things but better), it doesn’t seem nearly as great as I’d remembered it being. On the other hand, I can’t imagine a time when I won’t feel like watching it again.
Objective Rating: 2.9/4 (Good).
