In my holiday movie reviews post I mentioned how much I loved The Illusionist (L'Illusionniste). It's utterly gorgeous to look at; it's the type of animation art that puts anything Pixar to shame. (Apparently, The Illusionist lost the Oscar to Toy Story 3. I haven't seen Toy Story 3, nor will I, but I can't imagine that it approaches the beauty of this movie.) The Illusionist is set mainly in Edinburgh, with a few scenes in the highlands of Scotland, and in Paris and London. There are great interiors, in theaters, pubs, and a hotel, but it's the outdoor views of rainy, foggy, nighttime Edinburgh that I particularly fell for. Here's a whole mess of screenshots I took that will show you what I'm talking about.
