  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Mascot

    Intéressant et adroit mélange d'animation et de plans réels, pour une histoire enfantine bienvenue, teintée de frayeur et de craintes nocturnes qui séduit et inquiète à la fois par son émouvante et douce candeur et certains de ses terrifiants personnages...

  2. Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Mascot

    I learned from Starewicz's granddaughter tonight that this was originally a 40+ minute film, but American distributors made him cut the film because it was deemed too violent and too long. Luckily, she and her husband reassembled all the footage to make the closest possible original version (released on the Starewicz 5 DVD box set (DORIANE FILMS)) titled "Fetiche 33-12." ( I saw the shorter original (on 35 :))

  3. Log Lady's rating of the film The Mascot

    Those who laugh at King Kong should see this. The lack of an interesting story is a minor flaw, but the animation is practically flawless and the characters amazingly expressive.

  7. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Mascot

    I loved all the goofy, squishy faces and demonic scrabbly witchery-trickery. True cinema of spectacle.

  8. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film The Mascot

    A very creative and playful stop-motion film by the pioneering Starewicz. The opening act reminded my a bit of Toy Story, where stuffed animals spring to life, and later on try to escape a truck. The expressions of the main dog character are fully expressive and believable, and though the middle part sags a little in pace, the scenes in hell are pretty macabre and unique for the time.

  9. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Mascot

    Pretty good experimental film, but apart from that it didn;t manage to convey many emotions to me. the real thing to be appreciated here is Starewicz's mastery (especially for those times) rather than the story

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film The Mascot

    Beautiful film, a transitional "talkie", but really a silent, using fabulous old-school silent film making techniques and stop-motion animation. Must see for anyone who loves strange old dolls and antique toys (like me).

  11. kartina obskura's rating of the film The Mascot

    since you already turned this site into soulless piece of shit (and for the database this great you have to thank ONLY members who did that for love and for free!!!) so AT LEAST HAVE ENOUGH DIGNITY TO TAKE CARE OF THE SEARCH SECTION; FOR CHRIST´S SAKE
