Bunny and the Bull (2009)
Stephen has not left his home for over a year. He trips down memory lane recalling the European road trip he took with his friend Bunny. I was hooked on this one from the neatly imagined long shot opening credits. And the rest of the film did not disappoint. Mixing stop motion animation, live action, and creative sets we voyage across Europe with Stephen and Bunny as they meet a fiery Spanish girl, a stuffed bear, and a crazy homeless man. Offbeat and slightly weird, this one is laugh out loud funny. Recommended if you like anything by Michel Gondry especially The Science of Sleep.
This long strange trip gets 4 out of 5 Poblanos!
