Twitter Capsule: Some extraordinary images. Story, predictably, is moving and chaotic, nifty and trite. I'd have loved more living Mexicans?

VOR:   Pixar and Disney take another welcome venture into cultural specificity—without totally abandoning cultural cliché. Musically and visually distinctive.
