Eisenstein on Disney

“I’m sometimes frightened when I watch [Walt Disney’s] films. Frightened because of some absolute perfection in what he does. This man seems to know not only the magic of all technical means, but also all the most secret strands of human thought, images, ideas, feelings…. He creates somewhere in the realm of the very purest and most primal depths.”

— Sergei Eisenstein
