The first full feature animated movie from Disney is still fantastic because of it's handmade drawings. Since it is a Disney movie one must expect it is full of cute animals and song numbers but it all started here so it is hard to complain about anything really.
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.
Primera película animada de Disney, la que le da pie a un sin fin de excelentes películas de la compañía, a pesar del martirio estupido sobre los estereotipos de la mujer también se muestra una joven valiente, buena adaptación infantil del cuento de los hermanos Grimm.
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!
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.
