2011. USA. Directed by Gore Verbinski. Featuring the voices of Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy, Isla Fisher, Ray Winstone. While deftly referencing familiar cinematic territory (Westerns, screwball comedy, fantasy, adventure), Rango also points to a bright future for digital animation that doesn't rely on 3-D technology to draw in audiences. "Rango is some kind of a miracle: An animated comedy for smart moviegoers, wonderfully made, great to look at, wickedly satirical, and (gasp!) filmed in glorious 2-D" (Roger Ebert).
