Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse ★★★★

Excellent, a total lightning storm of impossibly expressive light and sound and color and image used to tell a meta-narrative deconstructing the idea of the hero’s journey and narrative structure, interrogating franchise tropes by way of using one of the biggest ones of the Spider-Man franchise as an emotional crutch for Miles’ story which asks fundamental questions about who gets to be a hero and how. So genuinely meditative and adventurous in form and narrative. Feels like it shouldn’t exist.
