WALL·E ★★★★★

WALL-E comprised the most complicated Pixar production since Monsters, Inc. because of the history and the world that had to be communicated, and while ultimately it's narrative is about the oversimplified necessity to discover a partner with who to share life’s adventures, it hooks into one of the universal principles of human survival and continuance. The substitution is that it’s a tottering robot, not a mortal, who requires camaraderie and who one day becomes smitten for an elegant model named EVE. It's the narratives deliberately conscious touches that make this movie thoroughly beautiful though, such as Sigourney Weaver providing the voice of a ship’s computer, and the results probably function more advantageously to grown-ups than to children.
