    Stylish and whatever but pretty boring in parts. Need to separate influence from content.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love the music and the colours and the visuals, however, this viewing is the first time I realised what a terrible bullshit message this film projects, and the lazy deus ex machina plot contrivances it employs.

    Dorothy is a weak protagonist, falling into an adventure and never actually instigating any actions, always resolving things by accident, such as killing the witch at the start and end of the film.

    The ending places a heavy appreciation on materialism and surface…

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2014

    The last time I remember being moved in a film in this specific way was probably Synecdoche, New York. I felt the character's struggle so inherently and his flaws resonated with me both emotionally and intellectually.

    Very great use of colour, placing a character with suppressed anger issues in a red world. And the cinematography was spot on and thematically sound, the shallow focus blurring out the entire world, creating a tiny enclosed personal haven for Theodor to reside with…

    ★★★ Watched 07 Jan, 2014

    I liked the style while I was looking at it. I had some problems after understanding what the point of the style was and what exactly it added but I wasn't objecting during the film. Maybe a little long but good acting and interesting enough characters and scenarios carried it through its running time.

    If this movie was a person it would be the prettiest person in the world… which is undoubtably Catherine Deneuve…. who is in this movie…

    ...it's kinda like Inception.
