Chico y Rita
So good. Love. Life. Loss. Gain. Revolucion. Dizzy Gillespie. Sex. Shoe-throwing. All in cartoon form!
It’s like Disney for people whole like to listen to NPR and say offhandedly, “You know, I was recently watching a cartoon about the jazz movements in pre and post-revolution Cuba” and make everyone roll their eyes. The only people worse than people who absolutely cannot stop talking about the artistic integrity of this film and how amazing it was are those people who listen to Buena Vista Social Club and who can even tell you their favorite song (Dos gardenias per te .) Those people who would call the movie visually stunning and full of heart.
God, I hate those people.
