Did Cinderella boogie to Latin music? Did Snow White hitch a ride on a hippy bus? Roald Dahl’s classic skewering of traditional fairy tales with revisionist storylines is now a dark and delicious double feature. This animated film crackles with Dahl’s exceptional poetic and naughty prose narrated by the Big Bad Wolf (Dominic West). Because of the unpleasant (graphic) demise of several key characters, the films are best suited for those who enjoy happy endings that are a bit more sinister than sweet.
