 Is ‘Cruella’ the Best Movie of the Year? 


A Disney Movie that’s darkly impudent enough to giggle your punk funny cheekbone. It’s a trenchant amusing stirring delight. The film was to be a distinctive spin-off origin story, running in at two hours and 14 minutes. But as people have been thinking, “Cruella” isn’t just any movie it’s better than you might have anticipated. “Cruella” is an American crime comedy Movie based on the character Cruella de Vil from Dodie smith’s 1956 popular novel “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”.

“Cruella”, the movie is directed by Craig Gillespie with a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, is a fabulous kitsch rock opera psychodrama mounted with seductive style and a ferocious kind of exhilaration. Before an ambitious young girl becomes Cruella de Vil, she had a dream to become a fashion designer, having been gifted with talent, desire, and innovation all in equal measure. But her life takes different turns intent on making sure her dreams can never come to life. Having herself wound up penniless and orphaned in London at the age of 12. Four years later when Estella, forsaken by the world as a 16 years old teenage girl, teams up with a pair of petty thieves named Horace and Jasper, but she still remains as a ruthless lone wolf. 

The thrill of this film is how twisty and emotionally vigorous indeed, Estella is a Dickensian orphaned urchin who maneuvers her way to the 70s London fashion industry, linking herself to the Baroness, a high dictator of costume who becomes her mentor and antagonist. But what ignites the story at every turn is the matter of life and death with the essence of survival. The more Estella learns of her past, the more the movie “Cruella” becomes not just a supervillain origin story but also an outrageously perpetrated journey of self-invention. It may be the best movie of the year so far with Emma stone and Emma Thompson creates a master class in mainstream acting, the impeccable soundtrack is to die for, as if Scorsese were making a Disney movie. Leaving with the question does the industry want a future in which a film as brilliant as this one is dumped onto Disney Plus.
