Most of the comments on this film seem to be from people who saw this when they were little, and haven’t been able to forget it. The imagery of this film lingers long after first view, and its marked stylistic and thematic differences to Wizard Of Oz have a hypnotic effect on a certain type of viewer.
In Return, the central theme is one of deep unhappiness with reality and a wish to return to fantasy, where as Wizard focuses more on the concept of “there’s no place like home”. I admire and am still deeply effected by this film because, in some ways, it is braver than Wizard. It isn’t afraid to deal with the conflict – that the misery of a grey Kansas is very real.
It expresses a rippling dissatisfaction that seems more in keeping with Baum’s original works, and is all the more satisfying for it. In particular, I enjoyed the parrallels between the real world and Oz- for what it suggests about our world- and the Nome King’s conversation with Dorothy. For a children’s film, there is great depth in both, and most of the film can be interpreted on several different levels. The implications of the corridor of heads alone is enough to send any first year pysch/lit student into a whole mess of garbage.
But don’t be fooled. This also an excellent children’s film, that deserves more attention than it got.
Nothing like a new classic!
Though this movie never picked up where Dorothy(Fairuza Balk) left off, this movie seemingly tries to be the update version of the original. Far scarier than the original movie in 1939, the new characters in Oz like Tik-Tok, Jack Pumkinhead, Mombi(Jean Marsh), and the Wheelers. They didn’t show the Munchkins, and Dorothy’s original friends The Tin Woodsman, and The Cowardly Lion have turned to stone. And to me, The Wheelers replaced the Flying Monkeys which makes this movie a classic of its own. The funny parts in the movie is when Tik-Tok took out the Wheelers, and Jack Pumkinhead’s head lands upside down, and he asks, “Why are you standing on your heads?” And that character Mombi, she has more heads than Albert Eistein. That’s what makes her a dangerous character. I enjoyed every bit of this movie, it was different, original, and definitely not a sequel to the first. Otherwise, it would be a no-brainer. Hard to rent, easy to buy, it’s a neo-classic for all ages. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
