About the Movie
In this retelling of the classic tale, Aladdin is an out of work indie-rock singer living in a video-game-world ruled by a perverted technology-obsessed Sultan. With the help of a magical genie named Mustafa and his 3D printer lamp, Aladdin gets lost and found again in a story about spiritual redemption in the internet age.
"We must change the nature of what we wish for."
Casually beautiful, unassumingly profound and just plain funny. Good music too.
Better than Expected
This movie is strange, it’s non-tradional and doesn’t play by the rules of what most films do. Those who aren’t interested in art and quirkiness, look elsewhere. Also, this isn’t for kids.
That all being said, there is plenty to like about this. The plot is basic, but serves as a structure for the poetic mind bending that Green wove into the script. I often found myself confused as to what a character was saying, but then stopped and really thought about the line and genuinely smiled. As a whole, this movie doesn’t speak as a giant message, but rather acts as a vessel of obscure brilliances.
There are some seriously memorable characters here, most notably the Sultan.
The music is also great. But that’s expected, right?
Support this great little film. Amongst the right crowd, it will be greatly appreciated. Spread the word, this film is actually noteworthy!
Amazing cast assembled for this crazy film! Visually immersive, never boring.
