Critics reviews

Eliminate all the moving critters from Bambi and you will find something at least halfway suggestive of a genuine pantheism. For all of Disney’s kitschy effects, he can convey a sense of wonder about plants, rocks and water that goes far beyond the drippy cuteness and cigar-box banality of his characters.
