Alex Dudok de Wit


Alex Dudok de Wit is a journalist and Associate Editor at animation news website Cartoon Brew. His writing has also appeared in magazines like Sight & Sound, Vulture, Time Out, Skwigly and ASIFA Magazine. His upcoming essay about Takahata’s Grave of the Fireflies will be published in 2021.



"The last quarter-century saw the flourishing of my father Michael's career as a director of animated films. I can't include him in these lists because I don't view his works as I do other films. I don't ponder their narrative structures or scan them for visual motifs; instead I see in them reflections of his interests, projections of his quirks, echoes of discussions we had long ago. For me, watching them is a unique experience, only tenuously connected to what I get from animation as a whole." Alex Dudok de Wit
