A near perfect allegory for autism. I mean that in the best and worst way concievable. In a way this film feels like a film written abd directed by a really smart and talented 9 year-old autist who thinks he's really funny.
Sonic representing the restless autist who just wants to make friends but can't, and Jim Carrey's profound representation of the antithesis autist, the misanthropic side of the soectrum. The autist who is too enlightened to even considered making amends with mere not-ist scum.
