For assorted reasons, it reminds me of last year’s Western of sorts, There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men.
It reminds me of There Will Be Blood in how it shows the evils of consumerism and corporate control, as well as the scene with Eve blowing up the spaceship reminding me of the burning derrick scene in There Will Be Blood. Also, the opening 16 minutes of Wall-E was wordless, as was the opening sequence to those two films, when no dialogue was spoken. And lastly, the “look” of Wall-E just resembled the look of NCFOM at parts. (Although I’m probably imaging things seeing as I know that Roger Deakins was a consultant on Wall-E)
OK, so that’s not an awful lot to go by. But I just wanted to say.
How cute was Eve, by the way? Her giggle was just adorable:
