Movie Reviews

  • this meticulous and convincing detail does not add up to realism but - depending on your perspective - to something either much less or much more than that
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • this carefully orchestrated dynamic runs counter to most lovers-on-the-lam movies, where naturalistic acting and handheld cinematography typically enhance the outlaw spirit
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • there's something faux-craftsy and primitive about the depicted rooms
    5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • there's beauty everywhere
    by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • the synopsis above is far too plain to convey the auteurist-bait mise-en-scene of Moonrise Kingdom
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • the pictures might be taken by a robo-security apparatus designed by a genius of geometry
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • shot on Super 16mm, the visible grain giving each image a wonderfully tactile depth and life
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • humor remains subtle and wry, as the young characters - who are definitely the focus here - are as well-spoken as the adults
    Review rate : A- by Eric D. Snider [ ]
  • has a tremendous ensemble cast
    4 of 5 by Julian Roman [MovieWeb ]
  • even in the most incidental scene, there is always an arresting design quality to divert the eye
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • colors are too bright, too perfectly coordinated
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • by evoking the joys and terrors of childhood, it reminds us how to be alive
    3.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • as always, Anderson devotes himself meticulously to each element, creating scene after scene of exquisite precision
    4 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • Anderson hasn't lost his puckishly charming genius for cinema-as-diorama visuals
    Review rate : B- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
