    Very funny. I laughed quietly to myself like a little angel.

    I don’t know if I have ever seen a more perfect movie. I don’t have words yet, maybe I’ll come tomorrow and try to describe how masterful this movie is. It took my breath away from beginning to end and at the end I just sat there exhausted by the experience. It has been a while since any piece of art, let alone movie, has made me feel so entirely swept away. Holy cow.

    I watched this at in a sold-out theater and watched grown men sob until the end of the credits.

    Most movies that are "important" are filled with more angst or trauma or dark reality -- but this movie was important just because of the pure, unashamed goodness. I don't know if I've ever watched something that focuses on goodness and says goodness in itself is a powerful story.

    Little known fact: heaven is actually Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, and when you get there Fred Rogers sings the anthem song and then gives you a hug and tells you he likes you as you are.

    ★★★★½

    The most important thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved by a man who serenades you on top of an elephant in the sky while a chorus of angel children sing back-up vocals in return.

    A chaotic, postmodern masterpiece that absorbs itself in spectacle and engages the frick outta me. I'm in love.
