Overwhelming. That's the only word big enough to describe this film. A gobsmackingly epic, incidentally Marxist (but also fascist???), operatic, bombastic fairy tale ballet that seems, itself, like a remarkable achievement for mankind. Can't imagine anyone that wouldn't get immediately captured by its superlative, magnetic full-blown symphonic music and images that somehow feel just as equally unfathomably grandiose, however I'm sure everyone who's ever saw this in a class would dispute it. Perhaps the very last scene/title-card could've been something entirely different to end on a proper high note, but that's nitpicking at its best.
PS: I'm adding seeing this with a live orchestra to my incredibly minimalist, without mentioning fictional, bucket list.
