Critics reviews

The fluid border between contrasting universes… is richly reflected in Selick’s meticulous stop-motion technique, which mixes handcrafted puppetry with animated camera movements to create a simultaneously liquid and tactile screen space. There’s a marvelously unstable quality to his creations: when Coraline and Cat later in the film amble into “the empty part of the world,” the blanched void seems to follow them and the landscape crumbles like bits of peeling wallpaper.
