Mickey: The Story of a Mouse (2022) SXSW 2022

The life, times and influence of Mickey Mouse.

All hail Mickey Mouse the mouse who changed the world.

Overly loving, near religiously orgasmic history of Mickey Mouse is going to be a treat for those who are in the cult and for those that are not it will be a film to make you talk to the screen. This is in no way an objective look at the mouse, but a grand 95 minute commercial from the Walt Disney corporation aimed at making people fall more in love with the mouse and buy lots of crap.

How you react to the film will be determined by whether you're in the mood for another rehashing of Mickey's history or not. I didn't find anything new here so I got bored rather early.

I should say as much as I am bitching, this isn't a bad film, just an unremarkable one. It is a 95 minute commercial disguised as a documentary. As I said there is nothing new here and it all is calculated to get you to buy more Disney stuff (the film is fetishistic in regard to memorabilia). If you need to have a reason to give more of your cash to Disney feel free to watch this when it plays Disney+
