This is a masterpiece. It’s everything I want from cinema. Bold and beautiful and angry and deep and hopeful and true. 

The moment at the end of the movie when the format switches (right before they head into Disney) is one of the more profound moments I’ve had in a theater in some time. As a filmmaker, I knew where this was going. I understood immediately the literal theft of the Disney footage that was to come. And in that moment, form was married to content  was married to character was married to story in a truly transcendent way, and it shook me to the core. When the picture cut to black, I broke the fuck down.
