Rated PG-13 | Length 87 minutes
Guess I absolutely love this movie. It’s quite something to see on the big screen (even if the 1.55:1 isn’t masked properly) and hear that exquisite score. It’s the imagery w/that score that does it for me. It’s a dreamy world that I want experience over and over. I suppose since it’s bathed in warm hues with that rusty autumnal palette in addition the witchery happening that it’s like cinematic comfort food. I’m still amazed this got a wide release.
