Daniel Johnson’s review published on Letterboxd:
“You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity.”
I haven’t been this confident in giving a film a five star rating in a bit, but I feel like this most definitely earns it. Every single frame is so perfectly crafted and coordinated. Every single image is striking. Every single joke landed. Every single moment is just so delightful... even the violent murder. Every single second worked for me. It’s just a consistently entertaining film that actually made me feel something. It’s probably my favorite Wes Anderson film. I just loved it and I really don’t have much else to say. Oh, one more thing, Mr. Moustafa’s theme is one of the most beautiful themes I’ve ever heard in a film. I love it and I cannot stop listening to it.
