Pixar’s Cars – a movie for automotive buffs (no spoiler)
It is an engaging cartoon full of hidden jokes and with a storyline and complex meanings way beyond any Toy Story or Monsters Inc. divertissement
Cartoonist extraordinaire John Lasseter and friends have made a movie that does exactly what it says on the tin: everything in it is about cars, down to the buzzing flies (miniature trucks). The only biology appears to be in the form of plants, especially saguaros
It may therefore become a little boring if you happen…to hate cars and trucks.
Perhaps not “one for the missus”?
And how many children will understand half of the jokes, or even recognize an old-style Fiat Cinquecento?
Cars is a movie that deserves to be seen several times. It will surely be declared a masterpiece in the decades to come, perhaps the herald of a new era of feature-long cartoons mostly aimed at an older segment of the audience than usual
