With film, I have a deep love affair. But with books, it’s not so much a love affair as it is me standing outside it’s bedroom window watching it sleep, never blinking while mumbling to myself and breathing really heavy.
Yes, it’s an unhealthy obsession, one that I cannot and do not ever want to give up. So you can imagine my reaction to the news that The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore – this magnificent and extremely poignant animated film about the magic of books – won an Oscar.
And now you too can react in socially unpleasant ways, by watching the full film online for free.
Wasn’t that amazing and touching? I certainly think it was fully deserved of it’s Oscar. Now….would somebody please be so kind as to pass the tissues? No, those are not tears, I’m simply sweating through my eyeballs like a real man.
