Once in a while I will find something that’s so good it’s hard to keep to myself. This is one of them.
I’ve always been a fan of short animated films, simply because they tell the best stories in the most concise manner within a limited time, when everything else is clamouring for your attention.
Paperman has everything I love: a good solid focused plot. Back to basics. Class. Nostalgia (indeed, throwing a laptop or an iPad at someone has different implications). Warmth. And no matter how many times we deny it, love at first sight/puppy love. And to think that this was conceived and put together by a first-time director and a modestly-sized team, wow.
The folks at Disney were wise to make this publicly available for the community to enjoy.
Highly recommend this in HD.
