The world gives us yet another Pinocchio to talk about

A still image from the Netflix production of "Pinocchio" shows the title character, a wooden puppet come to life walking through the woods.

Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

This week on Cinebuds, we continue our exhaustive analysis of all things Pinocchio!

We talked about the Disney remake a couple of months ago. Now we dig into the stop-motion imaginings of Mr. Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro's Pinocchio is a touch darker than your standard kids film, taking place as it does during Mussolini's reign in Italy. And the look of the film, as you'd expect from GDT, is much more immense, detailed and fanciful.

But what did we think? Did we love it or hate it or feel complicated feelings of joy and repulsion? Who knows? You will after listening to this week’s episode, which also includes our usual chat about what else we've been watching.
