    Mary Poppins Returns

    ★★

    There will be a time when these type of films won't work any more. The Disney corporation has never been bigger, yet it's become a wasteland of innovation.

As much as this movies tries to fool you the simple fact remains, magic can't be calculated.

At least the “documentary” suggests we are in the first steps of embracing that kind of dictatorship. Moore is such a compatant storyteller and I found a great deal of truth in this piece. I also Like how he doesn’t let the DNC off the hook. However, I consider Moore more of a propagandist than a true documentarian. He will jump…
