One of the reasons the films produced by Pixar Animation Studios connect so deeply with adults as well as children is the level of true cinematic craft that goes into each one. These aren’t cheap knockoffs designed to get kids to buy toys (though they certainly succeed at that). These are carefully made works of art put together by people who really love movies. Pixar films are packed with tributes to the language of cinema, from single shots to entire sequences.
To prove it, editor Jorge Luengo Ruiz put together the supercut you see above, featuring side-by-side comparisons that cover nearly the entire Pixar filmography. You might not have realized how much the Toy Story films had in common with Vertigo, or how Finding Nemo and Kramer vs. Kramer are related. Once you’ve seen it, though, you won’t be able to forget.
