Commentaries on this Media!

by Danny Baldwin

"WALL-E" is filled with wordless moments, given the mostly non-verbal nature of its protagonist, but this sequence (especially) shares characteristics with silent comedy, both in its slapsticky presentation of WALL-E's life in a post-apocalyptic environment and the dramatic nature of his first laying eyes on love-interest EVE. The sequence also gives the audience a detailed sense of what WALL-E's day-to-day life is like, with rich visual detail as he moves from one quotidian task and distraction to the next in this trash-filled world before EVE lands right in front of him.
