Oh V, tell me more~
Want me to tell you a Lovely Story, My dear~?
Couldn’t just be the good guy and just give me the poor princess that was a Stereotype. Give her a better home
Hahahaha Ooooooh No. You had to LIGHTEN her instead.
..Looks like I need to drag my ass back into the mess of princesses.
What is also fascinating about this film is that the villainess (Gothel) masks her villainy in the guise of love. She does not have the wealth of Cruella De Ville, nor the magic of Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent. She is only equipped with an arsenal of emotional manipulation and self-esteem grenades, designed to keep Rapunzel afraid of the world and herself. As such, she is an amazing archetype for the devouring mother that many women must (to greater or lesser degrees) face in order to get free, and fully come into their own. [x]
