2009′s Mary & Max comes in at number 192 on The Top 250 with 8.2 rating. Now this movie is a claymation film that I didn’t think I was going to like. I was pleasantly and very surprised. It is the story of a little girl Mary who lives in Australia who picks a name out of the New York telephone book. She then writes a letter to Max a middle aged fat guy who doesn’t get out much. They start a pen pal relationship that lasts into Mary adulthood all the way up to Max’s death.
I was home by myself watching this movie laughing out loud a lot. I couldn’t believe it. It also choked me up at some points which really fucked with my head. Here I am a grown man watching a claymation movie half a second from balling. Sometimes I’m such a pussy. It was really good.
Philip Seymour Hoffman did the voice for Max and I couldn’t tell it was his voice at all. The same goes for Toni Collette who did the voice for Mary. Well I could tell it was her a little bit. They both did an outstanding job bringing these clay characters to life. You also hear the voice of Eric Bana as Damien and Barry Humphries as the Narrator.
Adam Elliot wrote & directed this picture. Adam Elliot also won Oscar in 2003 for Best Animated Short for his film Harvie Krumpet. I did love this picture, the rating of 8.2 is kind of high. I will give it a 7.4. Like always please leave your comments if you agree or tell me to go to me die!!!
