The Adventures of Prince Achmed- Stephen Bevilacqua
Achmed by far is the best animated film that our class has seen both technically and creatively. Lotte Reiniger's first and only feature, was the first of its kind, which in my opinion inspired great filmmakers like Walt Disney and Wes Anderson. With spellbinding back round colors and wonderful stract-cutting, Achmed stands the test of time as one of the most revolutionary animated films of our time with Reiniger sitting as a pioneer of imagination. My only regret is not finishing the Achmed in class.
