Eddie Izzard, if he ever sees this movie, will attain nirvana, disappearing completely, like the flame of a candle that has been blown out. By putting a Scottish actor into Irish drag and forcing him to "match wits" with special-effects leprechauns in 1959, Walt Disney and director Robert Stevenson may have helped enlighten us all: The Scotsman is Sean Connery. Darby O'Gill and the Little People is classic kid-friendly yet suspiciously trippy early-1960s Disney, and probably has a plot, but who cares? Our consciousnesses are tingling in the mere act of contemplating the facial hair in this film.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
