THE PORTABLE DOOR (Theatrical Release Australia 2023)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Portable Door—terrific stage settings, great concept—serves as a highly intellectual watch, completely entertains, intriguing, almost mind-bending at times, and re-watchable. Ethereal and well-timed for effect, look for those difficult to connect the dots scenes. Terrific watch that The Jim Henson Company gives birth to is far beyond the Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and friends and is more than ready to teach something much deeper than 1,2,3 and A,B,C.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This Jim Henson  Company film works at the intellectual level and has a high level, ethereal feel to it. One may wish to watch it a second time due to its extremely rich development of story. It is completely worth its watch. Do not expect a Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy-styled story. This movie is exceptionally sophisticated.
