” Just needed someone to look after you, that’s all. “
Left alone on a planet, a trash compacting robot searches for meaning in an endless loop. In a sea of meaningless nostalgia, Wall-E fantasizes about companionship and a sense of belonging. His adventure leads him on a quest for love and to preserve hope that Earth will once again be inhabitable. Wall-E provides a vision of a post-consumerist world, neglected and void of any responsibility. It does this through vivid dystopian landscapes and social commentary that, at times, seems closer to reality than fiction.
