neverending story spoilers i didn't understand when i was a child 

the horse commits suicide

re: neverending story spoilers i didn't understand when i was a child, sui 

atreyu begs his friend artax to find the will to live so they can leave the swamp of sadness together. visually, quicksand drowns artax. but the swamp consumes sadness, and it is artax's grief for all that the nothing has consumed and will consume that plunges him into the depths.

atreyu is not just watching his trusty steed be taken by magical forces. he is watching his friend choose to die, no matter how much he pleads.

@garbados Oof. The thing that creeped me out about that movie when I was about that age was that the whole-ass planet was destroyed and fuckers were just flying through the vacuum of space like it was nothing. :blobnervous:

@garbados Yeah, that scene is hard for me to watch even now...
