You know that scene in "Amadeus" where Salieri is looking over the manuscripts of Mozart's music, and Salieri is devastated by the genius he is looking at?

That's more or less how I felt while watching "WALL•E."

How did the tale of a lonely robot bring tears to my eyes? How is it both a searing indictment of, and a love letter to, the human race? How did Disney release a movie that seems to be against everything an enormous media conglomerate stands for? How did the director of "Finding Nemo" top himself?

You'll find out when you see it.
