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.
A delightful retelling of the oft-told fable, this is a monumental undertaking of sheer vision and skill. The blood, sweat and tears to achieve this should not be underestimated, especially in a mechanically smooth age such as now - one can almost feel the human hand lovingly crafting these images. For better or worse, a template for nearly all that followed. Maybe time has softened the kitsch elements.
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.
