Movie Reviews

  • Wes Anderson pens an extravagant love letter to the adventurous editors of sophisticated literary magazines like The New Yorker, in "The French Dispatch"; it's a beguiling curio, and one that no other filmmaker could have created
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Wes Anderson overwhelms his film with so much detailed whimsy that dramatic conventions, narrative coherence and any deep meaning take a distant back seat to his entrancingly detailed doodling
    by Todd McCarthy [Deadline ]
  • this film is wholly entertaining, inventive, and so filled to the brim with quirky characters and story lines that you cannot let your mind wander for even a second, for fear of missing out on one of the many clever jokes and visual gags
    4 of 5 by Alysha Prasad [One Room with a View ]
  • the richness of its world-building is a delight, as ever, but the heart that elevated Moonrise Kingdom is not in such ready evidence here, nor the sharp wit and effervescent storytelling of "The Grand Budapest Hotel"
    3 of 5 by Phil De Semlyen [Time Out New York ]
  • The French Dispatch is a pleasurable giddy rush of Wes Anderson delights; It's a real giddy rush of a film, perhaps not as fundamentally moving or sensitive at his top-drawer work, but taking his micromanagement-heavy film craft to noir-ish new peaks
    Review rate : B+ by David Katz [The Film Stage ]
  • The French Dispatch is a fun watch; it's an endearing and liberated explosion of Andersonian aesthetics that doesn't always cohere into a satisfying package, but never slows down long enough to lose its engrossing appeal, and always retains its purpose
    Review rate : B+ by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
  • it's a film full of charm; Wes Anderson's fans will gorge themselves on the whimsy and visuals teeming with life, for others it places a starry cast in beautiful locations with not very much to do
    3 of 5 by Jo-Ann Titmarsh [HeyUGuys ]
  • amazing visuals, lots of laughs and an A-list cast make Wes Anderson's tribute to the New Yorker a real treat
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "The French Dispatch", is a work of such unparalleled Andersonian wit, that at times the sheer level of detail – mobile, static, graphic and typographic – that bedecked the screen was enough to make your correspondent's jaw slacken
    Review rate : A- by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist ]
  • "The French Dispatch" is a richly detailed tribute to the power of storytelling; Wes Anderson's film is an often fascinating, wondrous exercise in complex narration and visual composition
    3 of 4 by Pat Brown [Slant Magazine ]
  • "The French Dispatch" is a palimpsest of Andersonian obsessions.. and an obsessional devotion to the New Yorker; Thankfully, the movie is a gas. It moves with, well, dispatch, clattering along in its own eccentric way
    4 of 5 by John Bleasdale [CineVue ]
