Dr. Bernard Hazelhof said if I was on a desert island then I would have to get used to my own company, just me and the coconuts. He said I would have to accept myself, my warts and all. And that we don’t get to choose our warts. They are a part of us and we have to live with them. We can, however, choose our friends. And I am glad I have chosen you.
Dr. Bernard Hazelhof also said that everyone’s lives are like a very long sidewalk. Some are well paved, others, like mine, have cracks, banana skins and cigarette butts. Your sidewalk is like mine, but probably not as many cracks! Hopefully one day, our sidewalks will meet and we can share a can of condensed milk. You are my best friend. You are my only friend. Your american pen pal, Max Jerry Horowitz.
Mary and Max (Adam Elliot, 2009, Australia)
This should have been nominated for all the awards. Most underrated (and underseen) animated film ever.
