A character as Mickey Mouse is emblematic, he is a symbol. He belongs to the childhood universe, of course, but He’s also the herald of a big production company, a marketing product. What should we think about Walt Disney values, the way some of them are included, consciously or not in his films?
The true face of Mickey is maybe not so beautifull? I've imagined him without his mask, as tearing off his false funny face and running now to attack his audience. At the end of the world masks are falling down, and believes are reversing.
