Movie Reviews

Erikson's Eight Stages of Life
Gail A. Nolan | Falls Church, VA USA | 11/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful overview of Erik Erikson's psychosocial stages of development. The animation and protrayal of the tension in each stage of life (e.g. Ego Integrity vs. Despair)helps one to understand each of the stages. There are interesting characters in each stage who represent both aspects of that stage (e.g. "cute cat" for trust and "scary cat" for mistrust). This helps students to identify each stage of development while giving examples of the social questions and challenges each human faces during their life cycle. It is not only informative,but also creative, conceptual and accessible to all. One can easily see some of the Freudian theory Erikson builds on and the examples are clearly illustrate the dilemmas we all face as we develop and mature. Excellent film."
Classic animation
Carol Gunby | San Jose, CA | 10/31/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this for the Doonesbury Special, but found myself delighted by the other pieces on the disc as well. Everybody Rides the Carousel is an exploration of the stages of life as defined by psychologist Erik Erikson. My Universe Inside Out is a self-portrait/creation story by Faith Hubley. All three shorts are wonderfully animated and voiced, and are a great introduction to the Hubleys' work if you're unfamiliar with it."
Eight Rides for Eight Ages!
Carol Gunby | 03/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music of Dizzy Gillespie only adds to the dizzying effect of the experience of riding on the carousel of life. Far too many theories hypothesize that development ends at puberty. Erik Erikson extends life to it's proper end: death. The students who put Erikson's theory into a work of art, especially the clown narrator, let us know that conflicts at every stage of life are normal."
Tear Jerker!
Edward Saint-Ivan author of The Bla | Tampa, Fl. USA | 01/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched this cartoon almost thirty years ago and its dipiction of old age still scares me. The characters seem so lonly and vulnerable, one wonders where did their lives go. Perhaps knowing that only a few minutes ago we saw the characters younger adds to the erie effect but old age is also scary by itself."
