Martin T (es) wrote: A touching, elegant story about an old Anglo-Indian teacher who finds herself becoming increasingly marginalized by her friends, family, and employer. The metaphor of India's changing cultural and social landscape is handled deftly, and makes itself felt without being too pushy. The whole film crafted with artful camerawork, very well written, and features excellent performances. One of my favorite moments was the montage cut to, of all things, "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini".
David S (au) wrote: A solid giallo that is notable for having an actually well-developed and complex leading character (a trait that is rare amongst gialli). The narrative, sadly, lacks any complexity as the end revelation is both anti-climatic and thoroughly generic, causing viewers to cry out "That's it?!" Still, the atmosphere is strong and the supporting characters are surprisingly given some dimension (again, more than most gialli). A solid recommendation for giallo fans and a slight recommendation for mystery-thriller aficionados, but others shouldn't really go out of their way to see this.

It lost money at the box office (likely a result of a Disney animators' strike and the disappointment that it was not an animated feature), but it is still an important film because it preserves the hustle and bustle of the studio during the Golden Age of Hollywood. The studio's various movie-making operations are tied together by a fictional story of comedian Robert Benchley trying to pitch a film to Walt. On his journey, he encounters everything from the artists and storyboard designers to the sound effects crew and the voice of Donald Duck. It's amazing to see Clarence Nash in action, and even more baffling to watch as Florence Gill produces the sounds of Clara Cluck. I particularly like the demonstration of the multiplane camera that creates the lifelike depth in Disney films and the sonovox that was used to create the voice of Casey Jr. in "Dumbo." This documentary-like feature keeps us engaged through a few animated shorts that are incorporated into the story as we learn about the production process. The shorts include "Baby Weems," Goofy's "How to Ride A Horse," and "The Reluctant Dragon." I love the story of this flute-playing, picnic-sharing, poetry-reciting dragon. He is the antithesis of dragon stereotypes and it creates great comedic moments. The primary purpose of the film is to create an understanding and appreciation for the animation process, but it's nice that we get to see the fruits of the studio's labors through this fun short at the end. "The Reluctant Dragon" isn't really a movie for kids but it's a thrilling behind-the-scenes experience for movie nerds.
