The word to sum up Writer/Director Pete Docter’s Inside Out is BRILLIANT!
This is an animated film for adults and those who taut it as a way for parents to understand what’s going on inside the heads of their adolescent children are missing the point. It’s actually a way for everyone to understand how the human psyche governs and deals with emotions and memories.
It’s a film to which children should bring their parents as opposed to the reverse.
When I saw it, the audience was overwhelmingly comprised of millennials in couples or same-sex groups.
Pixar’s animation is at its usual excellence and the script by Docter, who developed the story with Ronaldo Del Carmen, and wrote the screenplay with Meg LeFauve and Josh Cooley is worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.
Inside Out is a must-see film that I’m willing to bet will get nominated by the Academy in the Best Film category. I give it a 5 out of 5.
