    At their core, stories deliver humanity and feeling - by producing a good story, you can transfer that feeling, that deep emotional event to another. Most stories dilute this idea - we get the thrills, the love, the thought, but not a specific event. This is great, not every story should be deep and personal. But when a film is? It sails above the rest, the core of being human encapsulated within a piece of art.

    This isn’t even a film. I refuse to believe these are actual, modern day people. They don’t exist outside of this film. Everything is so real, I cannot fathom the idea that it’s been constructed. It all makes too much sense. It’s mythical in its storytelling. I feel like it’s been passed down generations, altered to fit each carriers wisdom but retaining the reality of the story. It transcends cinema.

    Every film speaks to someone. Every single film has someone out there who watches it taken aback, completely thrown by how perfectly it applies to them; how it speaks to them. Soul is that - but for everyone. All of us. Every single human being who has and will live. It’s touching and funny and current and timeless and... an infinite amount of attributes. It’s a perfectly crafted film.

    I truly cannot stress this enough:

    soul might be the greatest film ever made.
