The Point1971

  • 4.3
Directed and animated by Academy Award®-winner Fred Wolf, with story and songs written by Grammy Award®-winner Harry Nilsson, narrated by Ringo Starr and including many colorful characters voiced by a bevy of talented actors, THE POINT is an enchanting fable for the whole family to enjoy! Years ago, there was a place called The Land of Point, because everything in The Land of Point had one: the barns, the houses, the cars, everything, even the people. Everyone in The Land of Point had a point at the top of its head. Everyone, that is, except Oblio, who was born round-headed. Since he had no point, Oblio, along with his trusty dog, Arrow, was banished to the Pointless Forest. Join them to see what wonders await these two intrepid travelers as they make their way on their amazing, song-filled journey of discovery!

This film figured large in my childhood imagination. So neat to see it here on Fandor. Looking forward to foisting it upon my daughters.

This is an old favorite of mine. It came out in 1971. I was 20 years old and in college. It's point was pretty simple yet profound for the time and for my age. -- a lot of societal upheaval, racial unrest, protests, counterculture, trying to be different and trying to fit in at the same time. It's still an important message for current times when so many people draw up sides and see diversity as a threat.

A little predictable and formulaic ... not quite "pointless"... but not particularly inventive either.

tedious, did not enjoy

I remember watching this many many years ago. It's not a particularly profound message that it leaves behind but it's a cute story that children and adults can enjoy.

In my late teens as a hippie I did find this film profound. And I believe it was a big part of who I became. Watching it again was a dream come true.


Nice to see it again after all these years. The Point is a long-time favorite of mine, with a lot to say about our society.
