The Incredibles ★★★★

A few years ago my daughter went through a phase where she was watching this week after week. So when she wanted to revisit it tonight I felt a little wary. I remembered it fondly but too well, and wasn’t sure I’d get much out of another viewing. The first half hour or so didn’t do much to lift my spirits; the mundanity of civilian life is felt a bit too accurately. But when the heroics start, Bird and his crew truly come alive, and so does the artistry.
