Reviews of Oliver & Company (1988) and related work

Oliver & Company (1988Moving picture, 74 minutes)

Seen in 2019.

An adaptation of Oliver Twist (1837) with anthropomorphic pets instead of child prostitution. Robert Loggia’s good and the primitive 3D CGI is fun to watch as a historical curiosity. As a treatment of economic inequality it’s useless, but there is at least the shadow of an attempt.
