No movie can be a downer that fills you with pure exhilaration. You leave WALL-E with a feeling of the rarest kind: that you've just enjoyed a close encounter with an enduring classic.
Absolutely spot on as usual, Mr. Travers. I've had difficulty putting into words my loving fascination of this particular film and I'm very pleased to say that you've outlined everything as nicely as I could have hoped from any critic. I was especially impressed (as in shouting "FINALLY! THANK YOU, PETER, THANK YOU!") when you compared this movie with "Brazil" as it was the first movie that came to mind after watching the first teaser.
I applaud you, Peter, well done indeed.
