“Some may call Gerwig a sellout, but she’s the one who hid a moving, emotional journey of self-discovery inside a toy commercial,” is just one of the great lines in Hoai-Tran Bui’s considered review of one of this summer’s most talked about films and pop culture moments. From its solid performances to crisply written script, nods to cinematic icons and an indelible entry into America’s camp database, Bui explains all the reasons why this film is both successful and a must-see summer romp. We’re supportive of the writers and actors on strike and recognize Barbie might be one of the last summer blockbusters you’ll be able to enjoy for a while.
