AllMusic Review by

CORALINE is the latest stop-motion animated motion picture by Annie Award-winning director Henry Selick (NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH). Based on the bestselling novel by Neil Gaiman (STARDUST, MIRRORMASK), CORALINE cleverly twists the ALICE IN WONDERLAND theme, by providing a lonely girl with a wide-eyed, adventure-ridden alternate reality. While the 3-D stop-motion visuals are nothing short of stunning, it is the haunting, mischievous music by Academy Award-nominated French composer Bruno Coulai that brings the film to surreal life. Even while performed by the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra and the Choir of the Hungarian National Radio, Coulais’s rollicking compositions are devilishly charming--CORALINE is like a Cirque du Soleil performance for the ears. Zipping through a concoction of world music, New Age, classical, and bebop, Coulais draws comparisons to Danny Elfman’s frenzied musical cocktails, but with an old-world elegance. CORALINE also features a brand-new song by renowned funsters They Might Be Giants.
