Little needs to be said about Inside Out; it’s more of the same from Pixar, and the same is very good.
Pixar’s noted ability for creative reasoning and progressive maturity finds itself this time telling us why we are the way we are. At seemingly every turn Inside Out delivers new and more interesting ways of thinking about the way our minds develop to ever higher standards of emotional complexity and understanding.
Charm and imagination yet again run at the forefront of Inside Out’s tale of Joy (Poehler) and Sadness (Smith), and joy and sadness.
Inside Out lovingly explores the complex interplay of emotional turmoil with Pixar’s apparently endless talent for innovation and visual design.
