Cinematic Time Capsule
1940 Marathon - Film #54
”My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many notes, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect”
“Which few did you have in mind, Majesty?”
Welcome to Disney’s most ambitious experimental film ever.
There are parts of of it that I absolutely love, and I completely admire it for what it is… but for me, there’s simply too many notes. Granted, I’m more of a story person, so as beautiful as it is, It makes too many demands on my un-royal ear and my uncultured brain tends to drift far too easily whenever I watch it. This poor man can't concentrate for more than an hour... and they gave me two.
”Incidentally, you won’t see any nutcracker on the screen.
There’s nothing left of him but the title”
