LeonRicci’s review published on Letterboxd:
THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF
A masterpiece. One of the best Movies ever. Multiple Metaphors.
A Phantasmagorical Fairy-Tale. One of the most Deconstructed Films of all time. A testament to its Greatness and Ability to Penetrate the Subconscious.
The Special Effects, Unequaled for many Years, the Rousing, Beautiful, Max Steiner Musical Score, the Timeless Story, and a presentation of the Things Dreams are Made of, make this a Model of the Greatest of Movie Making.
First Words Spoken..."Is this the motion picture ship?...The Venture yea!...Are you going on this crazy voyage?"
What a Voyage it is. A surreal "Venture" to the Outreaches of the Unknown. This is Rich and Rewarding, and Wonderful. A Tale Told at a Breathtaking Pace with Freudian Undertones and a Layered, Gallant, Adventure.
"Their gonna have to think up a lot of new adjectives when I get back"...Carl Denham before Leaving Skull Island.
It is not only a "crazy voyage" but a Movie of Infinite Intrigues and Enjoyment. Story telling and Film Craft Doesn't Get any Better than this. It is such a Fun Film Filled with Vivid Visuals and Resonant Tones.
"Holy mackerel what a show!"
