    Inside Out 2015

    ★★½ Watched 29 Jun, 2015

    I was expecting to feel the all the feels, but instead just felt sad (with some fear mixed in). Picking apart the seams in the storytelling is such an attractive distraction, but I know that part of that is just me being defensive (maybe resentful? Pixar is so good at wringing emotions out of me) so I'll just curl up over here and cry some more.

    Watched the "Final Cut" version, I believe for the first time. Don't know which version I saw previously.

    Great slapsticky performance by Fassbender, but I wish the film was more of that and less of the mopey audience stand-in bending the narrative around himself. The music is stuff I'd actually listen to, though. Not sure if that makes me a hipster or it's not as abrasive/challenging as the film imagines it is (or maybe it's that statement that makes me a hipster).

    What an amazing film. Keeps jumping between moods and genres in a way that reminds me of modern South Korean cinema. Also, the amount of room each scene had to breathe was unusual. Most shots have an extra second or two at the beginning or end that gives the movie as a whole a kind of shaggy suspense.
