Jacob Martin (formally known as The Movie King)’s review published on Letterboxd:
Film 18/30 of Scavenger Hunt 17
Task #20: A film based on a work by William Shakespeare
Don't ask me if I can explain the story of this classic Shakespearian tale for you, because it's a mouthful. All I know is that this is a cracked up trippy acid ride of a movie with lots of fairies, mad love is in the air, Mickey Rooney (who's probably 8 or 9 in this yet still sounds like a grumpy old man) acts like he's on crack the whole time as a trickster fairy, and James Cagney literally turns into an ass.
And it's beautiful. Go watch it now! Just trust me on this one!!! SEE IT NOW!!!!
