    shoutout to the dude who during one of the rotterdam screenings drank 4 beers, laughed randomly and at the q&a and even asked the filmmakers themselves why he was the only one in the audience laughing so much, and made almost the entire q&a about himself - no shit his partner crushed on the floor while entering the theater*: I’ll have what they had.

    Sometimes we just need to burst into tears.

    Pixar's Inception.
    Up meets Toy Story.
    A true return to form.

    Genius ending, brilliant ideas, and an amazing cinematographic world. Among their very best.

    Somewhere between Pasolini and Game of Thrones. Weird stuff. And pretty unique.
