Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Review

March 11th, 2023

My interest started when the reviews were strangely good. Then it was massively popular. Then it got nominated for a ton of awards, while the animation industry buzzed, crowed, and purred about it, too. Then my friends swore by its brilliance. And then Peacock added it to their library today.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish isn’t one of the best animated films I’ve seen in the past few years. It’s just one of the best films, paws down.

It’s embarrassing how much it made me cry, and surprising how often I genuinely laughed.

It has my highest recommendation (and even Marvel didn’t mind posing with Puss for this photo). This egotistical old cat — I’m referring to me — couldn’t have related to this tale of morality and mortality more.

Like Theia, this is a story of learning how to stay. There’s an inner harmony, and the world makes sense: cats and dogs, living together, no need for existential hysteria.
