Soul (2020)

Pixar’s latest masterpiece is now available on Disney+ to stream for free. Soul is cinema at its finest, surpassing Ratatouille as my favorite Pixar film. Do I recommend it to kids? No way. Its themes and messages will go far over their heads, in my personal opinion. And though they’ll appreciate the film’s incredible visual components, they won’t know what’s going on. This is an extremely intellectual, philosophical film. Among countless other things, it meanders through the existential crises of adult living. It honestly feels like a Pixar version of a blend of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Inside Out, Birdman, La La Land, and The Tree of Life. But it does not merely mimic these films; it synthesizes the influences into a novel, profound work of art. I’d argue that Soul is, by far, the greatest film of 2020.
