    I'm not 100% sure why but these movies dont fill me with that magical joy that the very best of Pixar does. They are undoubtably well made and well voiced. This is a very good movie but just not top level Pixar for me.

    Not surprisingly, Eastern Europe and Russia didnt seem to have a positive outlook for the future for quite some time. Maybe they still dont. So these movies all end up filthy and grimy in this post nuclear apocalypse.

    Ali: Fear Eats the Soul


    Just wonderful and gentle and loving and painful and and and... Took All that Heaven allows and really brought the immediacy of a social situation in Germany at that time. Made it all feel much more real. This wasnt snobby friends or spoiled kids. It was real human social drama.
