Similar to how I have a favorite author, I find it easiest to talk about my favorite director rather than a specific favorite movie.
“To be born means being compelled to choose an era, a place, a life. To exist here, now, means to lost the possibility of being countless other potential selves.. Yet once being born there is no turning back. And I think that’s exactly why the fantasy worlds of cartoon movies so strongly represent our hopes and yearnings. They illustrate a world of lost possibilities for us.”
I love his films: the animations, storyline, and lessons. His take on love is always on the love between friends, not romantic love, and I find that all much more touching.
