I think the bits of ambiguity work here because they add to the sense of mystery, helplessness and alienation that most of the characters in the movie feel to some degree. There are human characters in this movie too, quite a few. I think that's necessary because if humans aren't shown in a robot world, you have to wonder what purpose were the robots designed to serve? That was a curiosity of the earlier CGI movie, Robots. Most of the humans in Wall-E aren't as developed as the robots, but I think that's because they exist more to represent the whole of humanity rather than particular individuals.
We're asked to ponder the consequences of the choices they make as though the whole society was moving in that direction, not just one person.
Wall-E and Eve are the heart of this movie but the humans are used to add some intellectual gravity for the audience to chew on. Other choices made in the movie might also leave room for debate, such as the integration of some live-action footage into the film.
But because the movie as a whole is so audaciously stimulating and brilliantly satisfying, it's a plus that they left us with a few unresolved or unusual things to think about and question after getting off of the great emotional and visual roller-coaster experience. Wall-E truly serves up everything that I think an audience could want in a movie experience.
It will be very easy for me to watch this one over and over again. It is a modern-day classic that I believe should earn a place in cinema history as the "" of CGI animated films, both of them movies of indisputable brilliance, unyielding imagination and unending entertainment.
It wants only to entertain and does.

Was this review helpful? The synthetic image simply represents the future. Pixar computer graphics experts learned early on that producing computer anima- tion that simulates cinematography is much easier than animation that pursues a real- ism based on human perception, which presents much more information.
An Interdisciplinary Journal 8, no. Certainly, contingency and surprise still find their way into the production process, but computer imaging has enhanced the invisible, totalizing control of the animators even as they collaborate from different parts of the world.
The mix of old and new production practices accompanied by the mix of old and new aesthetics demonstrates the interconnectedness of production and product, which obviously includes mixed feelings as well. The first is a space to create, and the second is a space for that creation to come to life.
This framework informs his interpretation of technical innovations in animation.

Through the multiplane camera, for instance, Disney animators struck a new balance between fantasy and reality as they approximated the appearance of live-action cinema. This is obvious in most Pixar films: An Interdisciplinary Journal 7, no. As already described, contact between humans and machines is significant in WALL-E, but it produces mutual recognition rather than dominance. In the narrative, the programs and directives presumably created by humans are no longer managed by humans, but given enough time, unscripted and unpredictable phenomena emerge.
Captain B. Again, the film presents us with a contradictory formulation: Bruno Latour consistently argues that our tools, instruments, communication devices, and any of the technologies we interact with are not mere extensions of ourselves but are important participants in generating selfhood, action, and agency. For La- tour, agency is distributed through networks of actants, both nonhuman and human, and this reconfiguration of action challenges notions of political authority and or- ganization.

The resurgence of animation as a popular medium at the end of the twen- tieth century ought to encourage examination of the politics of things and technical devices, because computer animation, with its illusion of control and illusion of life, expresses both ontological hierarchy and ontological parity.
Akin to the opening sequence that threads together allusions to the spatial frontiers of the s, s, and s, the allusions to period-specific media relate unique representations to mechanically reproducible representations to digital representations—and the play each brings into human perception and ideas of naturalness.

In short, this section argues that computer animation presents nature in a state of play through its alien presentation of life. Its reproducibility serves only WALL-E, and it becomes a sacred prism through which he gains insight into an ancient human world.
Harry Zohn, ed.
Hannah Arendt New York: Schocken Books, , — Likewise, a new relationship between humans and machines and Earth develops within the world of the film. The major difference here, however, is that in the latter, the future is animated, whereas the past, as recorded in Hello, Dolly! WALL-E is the first Pixar film to include live action, and by staging the future as animated and the past as live, the film combines the nostalgia for aura with a similar nostalgia for an indexical, human past.
The fleshy look of human actors and the grainy appearance of old videotape do not fit the sleek, perfectly designed appearance of computer animation, which effectively renders live action as an uncanny, antiquated phenomenon. The animation of this sequence imitates aesthetic movements within art history e. First, it is part of a historically polar relation with semblance: WALL-E concentrates on the film as he views it alone, but in his ability to view it repeatedly and take the music with him, he also engages it in a distracted manner.
MIT Press, The audience could laugh together and experience the wonderment of animation in a therapeutic, cathartic mode. But for Benjamin, as Hansen notes as well, the anthropomorphic, graphic character is a critical component: He disrupts the entire hierarchy of creatures that is supposed to culminate in mankind.
Michael W. Jennings, Brigid Doherty, and Thomas Y. Levin, trans. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, , For a discussion of all three versions of the essay, see Miriam Hansen, Cinema and Experience: Adorno Berkeley: University of California, This na- ture encompasses not only the creaturely and physical but also the man-made and the historical.
Instead, it is a nature that cannot be directly pointed to, hence its comparison to the unconscious. The notion of the optical unconscious, then, is not exclusive to indexical media but applies generally to experiences with representations that are recognizably inspired by or related to naturally occurring phenomena, though without much resemblance to human perceptions of naturally occurring phenomena.
I refer to such media forms as presenting an alien nature, which can be more effec- tively conveyed through visual effects than through realistic, live-action recording. Writing in , Benjamin uses the real landscape and a painting as exam- ples of what is natural for human perception. This natural state is invaded by film, which collapses distances, bringing everything equally close, and de- stroys aura.
Virilio, writing half a century later, draws the lines quite differ- ently. If for Benjamin film still represents an alien presence, for Virilio it has already become part of our human nature, the continuation of our natural sight.
Virilio considers human vision, the Renaissance perspective, painting, and film as all belonging to the Small Optics of geometric perspective, in contrast to the Big Optics of instant electronic transmission.
In other words, through computer animation, cinematic space, which in live action has always been a three-dimensional space, gains more of the optical unconscious attributes appreciated by Benjamin. However, an important distinction is that alien nature jettisons the psychoanalytical notion that the uncanny refers to an experience of the return of the repressed.
Alien nature refers more to the relation of human perception and environment, and it should invoke a continuum of experience as alien things are familiarized and familiar things are defamiliarized. The narrative of WALL-E correlates with this notion of nature in a state of play, in that it depicts the emergence and naturalization of robot life along with the reconnection of past and present through representational media.

That is, there is an emphasis on the technicity of these media and how that affects human perception and ideas of nature. Accompanying the alien nature of animation aesthetics, Pixar characters express ontological crises that demand reconfiguring what is natural: This context echoes the effects of modernization, where aesthetic innovations interact with, follow, and influ- ence technical innovations, and where human subjectivities and identities are likewise shaped by such developments.
The play offered here is not that of live action, which has greater elements of contingency built into its assemblage of cameras, people, and staging, nor precisely that of hand-drawn animation; rather, the play facilitated by computer animation emerges through new forms of technical mediation and delegation.
The space of play offered by computer animation corresponds with the expanse of ludic practices across technology industries; and akin to the cre- ativity divide in gaming, in which the creative capacity of a gamer is fundamentally different from that of game designers, the playful experience of watching computer animation differs significantly from the experiences of the animators.
The absence of programmers also supports a Latourian reading in which there is no object, human or nonhuman, that is not subject to some kind of del- egation or directive. Even the creative classes have their ideologies, which means their 70 Kern, Culture of Time and Space, 10—35, — In conclusion, although the aesthetics of computer animation maintain a kind of alien nature experience that revitalizes the playful quality of animation and cinema, this does not prevent the naturalization and perpetuation of cultural practices from occurring within the narrative.
It may even facilitate this process, because in a world where nature is in flux and disfigured, that which remains natural may become all the more permanent.
In WALL-E, an abstract, liberal desire emerges by chance and gains essentialist status, which places the robots in a paradoxical but equal position with the consumerist, infantile humans.
The idea here is that once the programmatic directives are removed or loosened, a genuine nature emerges, and in that instance, heterosexu- ality develops without its cultural accoutrements.
The narrative of WALL-E, as met- onymically related to computer animation, places nature in a state of play while simul- taneously demonstrating creative control through the emergence of familiar norms and values. The emergence of these norms in the empty, playful space of the film both Earth and outer space is compounded by the playful space of animation itself. The space of computer animation, as represented in the particular case of WALL-E, poses as free for the essence of technology and the human to emerge, but it simultane- ously functions as a space for precise control, or algocratic programming.

It only argues that technology is properly used to help humans cultivate their true nature—that it must be subordinate to human flourishing, and help move that along. Moreover, the humans on the ship who have gone so long without caring for the Earth in any way, not even registering that the point of the EVE probes is to someday return to Earth, are not implicated in responsibility.
