Toy Story 4 ★★★½

The thing I like about the TOY STORYs is that because the toys' existential angst is so foregrounded and palpable, the movies can go from almost cloying to downright upsetting on a dime. This one even gets near the idea that Woody and the gang's relative stability is a privileged experience, that the life of your average toy is probably a sad, lonely one, that their self-actualization is rare. The adventure this time is slight but the egalitarian streak is ramped up, I really related to the new character who only wants to go in the trash, and I'd gladly sit through another story if it's going to be this stealthily thoughtful.
