Critics reviews

The brilliance of the movie is the way it delivers an adult frisson in the middle of a noisy and wacky kid-friendly sci-fi comedy. Perhaps only Spielberg could get away with this film’s blurring of childhood and adult longings, the overlapping of innocence and experience.

The successful reconstitution of this masculinity was produced primarily by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale’s BACK TO THE FUTURE, an admittedly glorious genre-crossing inversion of the Oedipus mythology (protagonist Marty must overcome not a present, unconscious desire for his mother and rivalry with his father, but instead must overcome his mother’s desire for him and actively facilitate the transformation of his milquetoast father into a confident figure of authority).
