Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty ★★★★★

I don't think there has ever been a more beautiful Disney princess film than Sleeping Beauty - although not exactly my favourite of the sort it's also been the one that I've found to be the most entrancing from their classic era films. Everything that one could ever love about these films just shines on every frame for there's never been a more colourful film from that era than this, but that also speaks towards the film's expressiveness especially in regards to what most of these films could accomplish at some of their best during that era: and in here that gothic artwork can't ever be mirrored.

I think rewatches of Sleeping Beauty only have made me wonder how come they're not taking the same creative risks that films like this have carried - but if there's anything else worth saying, there hasn't been a Disney villain who's matched Maleficent.
