Mary and Max. I might be the last person on the face of this planet to watch this film, seeing as how there are 1,250,000 views on YouTube of its original trailer (and at least two handfuls of awards!). But for the chance that I’m not the last one, I’m compelled to share about it here. [And if you haven’t seen it, then I am sure you are not the last one either. But you might want to look this one up to be sure you don’t become that person!]
Ok, so I really liked it. I’m not a great reviewer, but I am fantastic at exclaiming, “You must see this!” I have to admit that I didn’t see a few parts because I had to run out of the room for other things a few times, but the film was so good that I plan on watching the whole thing again just to catch the small bits I missed. There is also the chance that I’m adoring Mary and Max so much because they got me/my life so well in certain ways. So if you watch it and don’t like it, don’t blame me. You’ve been informed. And me/my life is not always completely normal. ; ) Make of it what you will!
As a disclaimer I would say this is an animation I would definitely reserve for adult, or at least mature teen viewers. It’s not exactly one to pop in for the kids on Saturday morning cartoon fest. ; )
FYI: I watched Mary and Max on Netflix, so if you have access to their instant streaming movies you’re in luck!
I’d love to hear if you’ve already seen this, or if you haven’t… what you thought about it after you’ve had the chance!
