any western new yorkers out there? western new york is so beautiful... when i was driving from the buffalo airport to the canadian side of niagara falls and it was so beautiful i wanted to cry. we went over the niagara river and even passed fantasy island, this dilapidated, half-abandoned amusement park and all the grass had grown over the ferris wheel, which looked stuck in time. it really took my breath away... i wish i could have stopped but i had to get over the canadian border. i want to visit one day!
that being said though the american side of niagara falls is.... a little sad in comparison to the canadian side. when i was growing up i heard the canadian side was so much better and was skeptical but then i got to the american side and its just refineries and casinos. the rest of the drive was lovely though!!
Luca isn't a Pixar masterpiece, but let's talk about that.
Very emotional Pixar movies (Wall-e, Coco, Soul etc) are complex foods you can get at high-end restaurants. They are tasty of course, compelling, something you could never dream of making on your own. Luca is exactly like it's a signature dish. Pasta, Luca is a bowl of pasta, drizzled in a simple yet savory sauce like pesto or tomato. It's homey, filling, comforting, familiar. It's a really good dish, something you've had since childhood. Is it the most exciting? No, it isn't trying to be. But that is what makes it so good. Luca isn't about a fantasy land, it is about people, summer, simple yet alluring memories of childhood. The struggle of hiding their species can be replaced with whatever someone hid. It is about bonding with the right people who accept that secret. It is a simple message, for a simple movie that does simple so well. For me, Luca sent me back to being a kid hanging out around a lake during summer. Making friends I would never see again, but still being thick as thieves during that time. Elaborate water gun fights, against rivals, villains, and friends. Only for friend and foe alike to gather around someone's campfire, roasting marshmallows, eating hotdogs.
Of course, Luca also brought me back to being in the closet as a young teen, nervously hiding from my parents and friends. Only confiding in the most trusted of friends. When Luca yelled "sea monster" at Alberto. It stung, since that is exactly what I would've and did do to my fellow queer when I was just so scared at that age. The beauty of Luca is how it does simple well, and how that simple can resonate with so many different people and their experiences. Sure my lake, and queerness probably also applies to a lot of people. Yet my lake could be someone else's camp, ocean, river, relative's house, or heck even country. While my queerness could be someone's disability, trauma, or quirks.
