Okay, this is a bit much. Let us start with a simple proposition:
Is there only one way to view art?
If we want to complicate that question, we might ask whether that one perspective properly considers all potential factors, and whether it should.The current controversy surrounds Pixar’s latest release, Wall•E, a dazzling and charming shoe-in for the Academy’s “Best Animated Feature” award. Apparently, the film has caused something of a stir among the sensitively obese. However, as quickly becomes apparent, that complaint depends on the proposition that there is only one way to view Wall•E.
