“is all this living really really worth dying for?”
a visual masterpiece with a gorgeous score to match. I truly enjoyed every second of this film. tackling themes of death, spirituality and existentialism in a way that’s accessible and heartfelt without feeling forced.
that being said, the real praise belongs to the animation; the sophistication and depth of which caught me totally off guard and took my breath away. I hope pixar create more original stories like this, where they can really show off the extent of their perfected animation.
I don’t know if I’m emotionally stable enough to write a coherent review but I just wanted to check in now that I’ve finished this show to say that I will continue to tell everybody I know to watch this masterpiece of a production. I’m so incredibly moved and touched by it, I am genuinely struggling to put it into words.
proper review to follow…
