Every work of popular art is political, says TIME critic Richard Corliss, and the good ones are more than that. "Pocahontas," a handsome, deeply-felt animated Disney musical, is a good one. Though the film has drawn fire from critics who say it is not historically accurate, and praise from others for its sympathetic portrayal of American Indians, both sides are missing the point. It's just a cartoon, for gosh sakes, a familiar boy-meets-girl, boy-gets-girl, boy-loses-girl story. And a well done story at that, says Corliss, "a film romance that earns a place of honor among Disney's latter-day animated film stunners."
