The heartbreaking beauty of Pixar in EXACTLY 7 minutes

A young Brazilian filmmaker spent 11 days watching Pixar's assorted films, painstakingly selecting the more than 500 clips that make up this touching ode to the house that Toy Story built.

Leandro Copperfield is the burgeoning 21-year-old filmmaker who assembled this clipgasm. And, for the most part, it's a moving testament to Pixar's technical artistry and emotional facility. (I say "for the most part" because of one or two ill-advised missteps: Did we really need a split-screen between Ratatouille and Goodfellas? No, as it breaks the spell that Copperfield was so effectively casting.)

Anyway, while you watch, give this some thought: Has any filmmaker or filmmaking collective had a run as glorious and uninterrupted as Pixar's? They've never missed. Never.
