Billy Wonka - Excellent summation, I agree 100% and thanks for articulating many impressions I had about the film.
The only problems I had (and I might be nitpicking because it was a wonderful film) was the editing - often done in quick 1 to 2 second clips. I think the director was facing the challenge of making eating at a McDondalds eventful and cinematic (for example). I found this quick editing annoying and distracting at times.
And the music was mostly meaningless. It played like a 90's PBS special with generic "Americana" vamps. It wasn't appropriate for the era either. I really didn't like it. That said, the "Pennies from Heaven" scene was magical.
