Telluride Film Festival: Sunday at the Palm - "Fantasia"
Free. Concessions available. 1940, 125 minutes, Rated G Disney’s groundbreaking masterpiece restored for the film's 50th anniversary rerelease. “The colors are richer and more delicate than before,” wrote Entertainment Weekly, “The restoration took two years and included a frame-by-frame hand polish of the original nitrate negative, with a razor blade used to scrape off particles of dirt.” “Fantasia is simply terrific -- as terrific as anything that has ever happened on a screen.” – New York Times “The words most used to describe ‘Fantasia,’ besides the conventional ‘beautiful’ and ‘wonderful’ were ‘path-breaking’ and ‘courageous.’ The phrase ‘courageous beyond belief’ would be even more accurate.” – Los Angeles Times.
