    Barbie and the Diamond Castle

    ★★★½

    How is Barbie and the Diamond Castle, a straight to DVD glorified toy advertisement with Sims 2 quality animation, literally more gay than 90% of actually gay movies??

    Appreciated some of the Lynchian dashes of surrealism (especially in the dream sequences), and the Toto/Brian Eno score honestly slaps, but in the end this was just excruciating. And utterly incomprehensible. Dune drowns in proper nouns and mind-numbing exposition to the point that I felt like the movie should come pre-packaged with a glossary, or maybe even a walkthrough. I basically had no idea what was going on at any point, though in the film’s (meagre) defence, part of that…
