5/5

Review

‘My Year of Dicks’, an aptly titled animation, directed by Sara Gunnarsdottir and created and written by Pamela Ribon (based on her personal memoirs), takes viewers on a wild journey of a teenager, Pam (voiced by Brie Tilton), who is determined to lose her virginity. The film unfolds in five captivating chapters, skilfully recounting Pam’s coming-of-age experiences, capturing the essence of “dating” and adolescence in the early 90s.

Gunnarsdottir and her team of animators infuse the animation with wild metaphors, offering a visually striking portrayal of Pam’s extreme emotions as she navigates the transformative path to womanhood. Jackson Kelly’s portrayal of Sam, Pam’s best friend, adds depth and resonance, providing a worthwhile conclusion to Pam’s year-long odyssey. The film balances humor, wit, and profound relatability, creating an entertaining and emotionally resonant narrative that is both well-written and deeply engaging.

Pamela Ribon’s creative brilliance shines through in the script, contributing to the film’s quick-witted and eccentric charm. The collaboration between Gunnarsdóttir, Ribon, and the animators results in a spectacular and immersive world that brings Ribon’s words to life in an extraordinary way. As the credits roll, the audience is left with a profound appreciation for why ‘My Year of Dick’s rightfully earned its place at the 95th Academy Awards, standing out among the best in its category.
