Watership Down

Emotionally scarring children since 1978.

Violent death comes from all sides — unleashed by humans and fellow animals — in this tale of rabbits scratching out a life in a blighted world.

Toss in apocalyptic visions, then add a dark, naturalistic animation style rich in eerie shadows.

Finally, top with a melancholy Art Garfunkel song, Bright Eyes, which contains lyrics like “Floating out on the tide, following the river of death downstream. Oh, is it a dream?”

So, a good time for one and all, especially for the children of the ’70s who witnessed it in theaters.

We were just tougher back then.
