(Mind out for spoilers, we don't do a good job of warning of them here. After the plot synopsis at the beginning, expect spoilers throughout.) Pixar's extraordinarily vivid, rich Coco tells the story of a young Mexican boy who dreams of life as a musician, stranded in the Land of the Dead. Themes of sacrifice for family, liberation and expression through music, remembrance and commemoration of loved ones and more are explored, and a culture that is typically ignored or stereotyped - or walled off if a certain someone has his way - is allowed to explode onto the cinema screen. It's as warm, funny, and imaginative as anything you'll see all year, and we adore it. Jose is reminded of his dear abuelita. Mike cries. Recorded on 23rd January 2018.
