    The Lion King

    ★★★★★

    The (Shakespearean) quest for power, involving some usual evils of: murder, deceit, jealousy, manipulation, a lost childhood, chaotic autocratic rule...

    Triumphed over by: friendship, love, eating bugs, an infectious ode to life theme song, and a hard knock to the head by a crazy-ass mandrill.

    Colourful, vibrant animation. Endearing [both evil & good], well-voiced characters. Beautiful music. Wonderful dialogues. Fantastic storytelling. Unlimited rewatch value.

    Masterpiece.

    First known film with live-recorded sound, eh? That it is. But... a private violinist for 2 men dancing together? Clearly the first gay motion picture too, surely?
