Such a pleasure to see a new piece of American 2D feature animation. The film looks absolutely beautiful, using its traditional animation to create a looks that’s at once familiar and unique, modern yet painterly. The story is cute and clever. I feel like this could easily become a popular Christmas staple.
God I love Joseph Kahn, a brave singular voice in the independent film world. Bodied, like Detention before it, is clever, subversive and thought provoking all while being entertaining as hell. This gave me many laugh out loud moments as well as some interesting discussions once the film was finished.
