Save the best for last... Yeah, that's no better way of ending 2020 with one of the best films i've seen this year. Not only i watched this coincidentally with the legalization of abortion in Argentina, which made the timing even better, but made me reflect as man by putting me in the shoes of a woman. It's a pretty good film that a lot is spoken with very little dialogue, what makes the heavier scenes hit much harder. It probably won't go to the Oscars, but i expect to get some recognition at smaller awards.
This being Pete Docter's fourth film in the director's chair, I now understand a little more about his way of telling stories. There are always two characters with many differences between them, but throughout the narrative they learn from each other and find parts of themselves that had disappeared. Monsters Inc. have that, Up also and mainly Inside Out, which brings similarities in structure with Soul. In addition to these similar aspects to his other films, the feature in question…
Student: Would you defend Hitler?
Stone: In theory, it would be my duty as an officer of the court.
Student: Hitler killed my great grandparents.
Dialogues like this one make great scripts. Not Hitler jokes.
But quick and clever lines.
Box: I want to talk to the boy.
Jack: And I want to live forever.
Box: Had to ask.
Jack: You did. But did you before?
"The Night Of" demonstrate that HBO is not to be trifled with…
