I like the idea, and the story is perfect for the medium, and parts of it were really fun. And yet, somehow, it didn't quite deliver on whatever I had imagined it was going to be. What kind of a story is it? I'm still not sure.
It's a beautiful and challenging idea, even ground-breaking for a movie, to show the mind at work, with the emotions of Joy and Sadness rightfully dominant and their interplay important. But something about the technical aspects of it all, the control console like a spaceship, and the artwork on the islands, I thought took away from the idea. Too much of some good things maybe.
You might be interested in a book on "Inside Out" - "Driven by Emotions,'" about five stories told rom the mind.
