Ieri negli Stati Uniti è uscito Avatar, il filmone di James Cameron di cui si parla da mesi. A Dana Stevens è piaciuto. In Italia esce il 15 gennaio.
But this is exactly what you don’t want to hear: critics gassing on about the freighted meanings of Avatar. You, dear reader, want to know: Is it or is it not stupendously friggin’ rad? And the answer is yes. For most of the first hour, a good portion of the second, and even many of the 40 minutes left after that, Avatar is stupendously friggin’ rad. Like Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Lord of the Rings, it’s a conventional adventure story, but one that’s set in a world so richly and specifically imagined that it’s thrilling just to dwell inside it.
