A boy named Charlie Brown notes
What a quietly existential film
The film is beautifully animated and wonderfully colored. Far more advanced than I thought it would be.
Honestly the film has some really interesting and unique cuts and montages scene particularly the bed all scene.
The film seems to be happy but with an ever apparent and concurrent melancholic and sad undertones.
The music numbers at first seemed to be a bit thrown in, but ultimately they are some of the most beautiful sequences in the film. While some work better than others, specifically the piano sequence, the most beautiful scene in the film. It adds another layer upon this classic.
The ever losing Charlie Brown experiences what is real depression but ultimately sees and understands the little joys in life thanks to Linus.
What a truly special film I never thought would be this good and make me think and even feel as much as it did.
