I said it before I’ll say it again. It’s a spiritual film. And weirdly a Buddhist one.
Barbie destroys her ego by connecting with the meaning of nothingness to develop and overcome her preconceptions of reality. She breaks the mold and connects to her true essence. Enlightenment.
What a fucking movie.
When I say this film is perfect I mean it. It has held up as my favourite film since I was 13 years old, I’ve seen somewhere around 500 or more films now in my life and I can still say this is the best film I’ve seen.
I love Martin Scorsese, all of his films are brilliant but Goodfellas is the best, the cinematography is beautiful (of course the tracking shots), the story is incredibly compelling with truely interesting character…
This film is so special due to its visuals, the design of the world and the creatures that inhabit it are brought to life by animatronics and masterful puppeteering work. The story was as interesting as it needed to be but the world building is what stands out the most, the fantasy world that the characters inhabit feel real and thriving and I love the lore that surrounds it.
It’s made in the 80s but looks more real than modern CGI.
Looking forward to the new Netflix one.
