disney marathon continues with this one. i thought the animation was a strong point here. pocahontas is a bit angular at times, but if you look at who voiced her it actually makes sense. good pastoral scenes reminded me of bambi or a thomas kinkade painting. at least two solid songs including the one towards the end where both the whites and the indians sing about the other side being full of savages. there was a point in my life when i was anti-establishment and disney represented that in a lot of ways. they were too wholesome and vanilla. now, though, i’ve come to respect them to a certain degree for their longview on topics like habitat destruction (bambi), inner beauty (beauty and the beast), and differing perspectives on colonialism or “the other” (pocahontas). this is a good one.
