    When you think about Rankin & Bass, you think about stop-motion television productions made for television. But they did do some traditional animation, and they did release feature films. 1982's The Last Unicorn is a whimsical fairy tale about a unicorn's quest to find others of her kind, all of which seem to have fallen at the hands of an unhappy king. I would not call him evil, as this was written in more modern times, and has an element of pop psychology and trippiness to it. The animation is slightly more primitive than what Disney was doing at the same time, but it has its moments and a strong voice cast (surely, this should count as one of Christopher Lee's greatest villains). And you're never exactly sure where the story will go, which is surely a triumph for this kind of material. One thing: I'm not sure it was done on purpose, but the story seems to lead you to a dark but unaddressed conclusion about the fate of the animals from the unicorn's forest. Even if that's wrong (I haven't checked out the book), it's still a good example of the story's innate ambiguities. One for more alert kids, but also adults who like to talk about what they've just watched once the light come up. 2 years 4 months ago
