Not Jordan Peterson.
Pete Doctor does it again. Pixar once again proves that movies can be intensely entertaining for both kids and adults at the same time, and deliver themes of such subtle complexity it makes you wonder how other studios can bare the shame. This is a very good movie. For kids who are trying to figure out who they are, and for adults who are trying to figure out who they are, Soul has managed to illustrate perhaps the only answer that really matters.
This movie is so much fun. I remember completely chewing my nails off in theaters way back when I saw this in theaters for the first time in high school. I've been meaning to watch it again ever since. It only took me 20 years.
Yes, it's a bit dated. The music swells way too much, the digital effects can be less than convincing, and the moral of the movie seems to be that sometimes you have to let less…
What a perfect adaptation. With this film, Greta Gerwig has established herself as one of the best writer/directors working today. She made a choice to use the two parallel timelines as reflections of one another, which could have proven catastrophic to the story in less talented hands, but she managed to assemble an incredibly moving illustration of the circular nature of memory and love. It's an exquisite rendition of a powerful story. Bravo all around.
