Cruella ★★★½

NOT what I expected. Actually it was was I expected (pretty much a Disneyfied JOKER & Harley Quinn origin story) but the filmmakers really amp up the energy and charm and I was kinda dazzled by the whole thing. A little dizzy too.
Also, Paul Walter Hauser’s Bob Hoskins vocal impression is incredible (he nearly steals the movie)?and the CG dogs are a delight.
