Critics reviews

For all the noble (as well as mercenary) intentions behind Disney’s Pocahontas, there’s a certain blandness at its center that interracial romance, multiculturalism, pacifism, and pantheism can’t shake off. If all Disney cartoons are to some extent “art” by committee, this one qualifies to a greater extent than many others.
