Cinemaholics Podcast #222 – Cruella

Relax, darling, we’re working overtime this holiday weekend to bring you our in-depth thoughts of Cruella, the latest Disney live-action reimagining, this time focusing on the delirious origins of Cruella de Vil, portrayed here by Emma Stone in a sprawling crime comedy directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara. We also discuss Amazon’s acquisition of MGM and what that might mean for the future of the movie industry, plus some extra thoughts on the other films we saw this past week.

Key word: “mostly.”
