I’ve watched Soul two times all the way through and have skipped through another three or four times looking for clues. I’m always seeing something I didn’t see before and also coming away with questions. I think it’s a deep, deep movie!
I’m still struggling with the difference between purpose and spark. What did that seed mean? What IS soul??? And… And also… And?
Rewatching Soul is like analyzing a poem. Last night this bit registered for the first time:
Joe: By the way, why do you sound like a middle-aged white lady?
22: I don’t. This is all an illusion.
22: This whole place is a hypothetical._
A hypothetical??? That’s deep! Is Joe (or his soul) really zipping around the universe, or is he just having a conversation with himself?
