“In The Book of Life, Mexican animator Jorge Gutierrez guides his viewers on a 3D visual tour through the customs of Dia de los Muertos, his country’s holiday of remembrance. It’s a colorful film that’s shaped as much by Gutierrez’s aesthetics as it is by his inclusive approach; the film invites uninitiated members of its audience into a surprisingly earnest cultural experience, teaching them about the Day of the Dead’s various rituals and legends while serving up a boisterous tale of love, honor, and family.” – Via Paste Magazine
