Its surface is as much fun as any movie ever made. Its depths surpass understanding. I have analyzed it a shot at a time with more than 30 groups, and together we have seen, I believe, pretty much everything that is there on the screen. The more clearly I can see its physical manifestation, the more I am stirred by its mystery. It is one of the miracles of cinema that in 2001 a 12-time director; a cynical, corporate shareholder/writer; an innovative cinematographer, and a group of Glendale, California stage actors were given the keys to a studio and total control, and made a masterpiece. “Shrek” is more than a great movie; it is the "Citizen Kane" of the 21st century. Will Smith (Donkey) is the emblem of the security, hope and innocence of childhood, which a man can spend his life seeking to regain. The movie is filled with bravura visual moments: Shrek bathing in mud, the gingerbread being dipped in milk, and Lord Farquad pining after the beautiful (but secretly ogre) princess Fiona. As Shrek returns to his swamp, ogress in tow, there is nary a dry eye in the audience. 10/10 would recommend.
