      Crissy N Very entertaining. Much different from anything else I've seen recently. I really enjoyed it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Bruce C If you like Wes Anderson and Roald Dahl--it's perfect. It's sooooo Wes Anderson. If you don't like Wes Anderson, and creepy fairy tales, like the original Brothers Grimm, pass. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Donald A It is in this film, the most, seemingly, dialogue-laden of the three shorter Dahl-by-Anderson films, the director shows his trademark irony and, very intriguingly, starkly dark images. I believe that this may be the first time that Anderson has ventured into a concept of this magnitude. I was not disappointed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Scott W Good stuff lol . Well done again Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review KerryWhite's S Rating: 7/10. 70/100. | I think I want to read Roald Dahl now. His captivating story telling is superb. How does he make me so intrigued and invested in these semi weird/surrealistic stories? I must study his genius. Oh, and Wes Anderson's too. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Brad M wasted already too much time on this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Adam Graham Detroit News His actors are across-the-board superb... Rated: A- Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Sam Adams Slate [The] visual presentation and rapid-fire dialogue make [it] instantly recognizable as Anderson's, but [the] tone takes him into territory so unexpected it might be disorienting if his hand were not so sure. Oct 3, 2023 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker Lest viewers become even briefly comfortable with the enchantments of his staging and of his actors’ performances, Anderson jolts them alert with ever more audacious contrivances. Oct 3, 2023 Full Review A.S. Hamrah n+1 In unprecedented total avoidance of cheese in commercial narrative filmmaking, the act of writing and the writers doing it appear in these movies, but Anderson refrains from showing their writing on the screen in superimposition. Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilm ...hinges on a brilliantly comic performance from Ralph Fiennes. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Graeme Tuckett These films won't be for everyone. They are twee, self-consciously cute and in love with their own cleverness. But, if you or the nippers feel like a short movie, full of great performances and very good jokes, I reckon they are a treat. Oct 23, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
