olivia’s review published on Letterboxd:
a fun, entertaining, snappy, witty, comical, steampunk goth glam rock madness extravaganza. emma stone plays cruella to perfection, and this was also possibly a career defining performance for emma thompson. i love how with this and maleficent, disney is reinventing their catalogue of villains, and giving them humanizing back stories that provide reasons and explanations of why they turned into what they are now. i hope they continue in this trend. definitely an actual worthwhile and sparkly installment into the otherwise quite dim live action prospects that disney has offered us thus far. even the credits were a dazzling spectacle. i thought it was great.
