Cruella is equal parts fun and exhausting. In between the obnoxious needle drops and the iconography of 101 Dalmatians there lies a very intriguing story about cruelty and women in power. The film is aesthetically pleasing and feels like a movie from the director of I, Tonya, but Disney’s darn obsession with IP prevents Cruella from reaching great new heights for the studio.
Oh, Disney, we could have had it all.
