Sita Sings the Blues Reviews

Charming indie animated film that doesn't insult anyone's intelligence.

And the ingenuity of Sita -- which evokes painting, collage, underground comic books, Mumbai musicals and "Yellow Submarine" (for starters) - is dazzling. Not busy, or overwhelming, or eye-popping. Just affecting, surprising and a lot of fun.

Paley's beguiling, consistently inventive visuals and sly yet melancholy tone are about as warm and winning as heartbreak-fueled empowerment gets.

This colorful, cranium-bursting film isn't about one specific tale so much as the endless ways you can present narratives; it's nothing less than a kitchen-sink deconstruction on the art of storytelling.

Nina Paley's animated marvel mixes a personal tale of romantic woe with a fabulous, often hilarious, recounting of the Sanskrit epic fable The Ramayana.

Nina Paley's delicious Sita Sings the Blues finds solace in autobiography and an animated gold mine in the caverns of an ancient Sanskrit epic.

An almost indescribable pleasure from Brooklyn-based cartoonist and animator Nina Paley. The film, dazzling and poignant and five years in the making, retells the ancient Indian epic The Ramayana from a gentle but insistent feminist perspective.

To get any film made is a miracle. To conceive of a film like this is a greater miracle.

Constitutes an irrefutable argument for classic 2-D animation as a viable, vibrant low-budget arthouse medium for adults.
