Forget everything you thought you knew about Pixar’s first feature film, Toy Story.
The groundbreaking computer animated buddy adventure comedy already holds an exalted place in cinema, and not only as animated film. Directed by John Lasseter, the movie holds audiences of all ages enthralled with its all-too-human narrative told by toys.
After more than twenty years, critics and viewers alike believed they had drawn every last thread of meaning from the movie, but they were missing a real game-changer that completely upturns the way we view it.
“Looking at it this way adds so much more dimension,” said film critic Shelby Crowther, holding a kaleidoscope up to one eye. “Every character has so many more facets that I’d ever seen before. I thought the palette was colorful before, and this just strikes me with awe.”
Viewers report that now every experience of the movie is unique.
“You literally see something different every time you watch,” said Crowther.
