Praise from Eisenstein led to me revisiting this one. The dwarfs creep me out more now then they ever did in '94, but the fantasy set-pieces are still exquisite, with an authentically mystical fairy tale vibe that contemporary Hollywood animation has all but abandoned (sadly) in favor of irony and parody. It deserves mention alongside Cocteau and Melies—it was able to launch an Evil Empire for a reason. 5 stars.
There's a real otherworldliness to early Disney fairytale kitsch that isn't really recognized anymore, all the graceful limbs, the lulling female choir, the mysterious and beautiful forest backdrops. They are still trying to find their footing with this one though, Snow White is a pretty but moronic bore, the dwarfs are dull, unfunny and overused.
Interes meramente historico. El "Hii-poo" suele ser utilizado por algunos nerds antes de cuchiplanchar con sus viejas. Aqui tenemos una versiòn nacional llamada "Blanca Nieves y sus siete amantes" con Sasha Montenegro y Rafael Inclan. Resulta dificil decidir cual de las dos es mejor.
I much prefer these old Disney films, not the latest abominations that bastardize and sanitize classic fairy tales (I will never forgive them for "The Little Mermaid"). The classics are a pure joy to watch.
It's been almost 80 years since its premiere, and Snow White is still the fairest of them all. Sure, it has aged noticeably, but I believe it holds up very well, even today. There are other things to be appreciated other than its historical value. The beautiful artwork and backgrounds, the music, the seven little and very funny men, the menacing villain, even Snow White herself and her sweetness. A classic!
