HKFanatic's rating of the film Up

After watching "Up," I know why its fans, many of them serious cineastes, hold it in such high regard. While the middle of the film is largely taken up by the usual Disney movie anthropomorphic antics, there were plenty of moments during "Up" in which I felt like I was watching an European art film in the vein of "Umberto D.," only rendered in a vivid palette that causes colors to pop gloriously off the screen.
