Soul (2020)

Pete Docter and Kemp Powers directs Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey and Graham Norton in this animated comedy about a struggling jazz musician’s soul who has to re-enter his comatose body before he misses his big break.

A really compelling lark. The existential stuff about death, personality and purpose is achieved with a fizzing elan. The body swap comedy that consumes the second half is as silly and pleasurable as any throwaway live action equivalency from the 80s. Heartwarming stuff, probably Pixar’s best since the high watermarks of Up and Toy Story 3.
