José’s review published on Letterboxd:
Of course Wes Anderson keeps doing movies out of the ordinary that only him could do. THE FRENCH DISPATCH is a delighted, elegant, lurid, and eccentric throughout which I was able to connect hugely with its anthology of stories. It is also one of the most funniest films I watched in a very long time because of the absurdity, symmetry, originality, and its constant color and aspect ratio changing that has the Wes Anderson trademark, so blend that with the comedy and the experience is magical. If you can think about how many topics it covers, I would tell you that the film explores the curiosity, a homage to classic journalism and the inspiration of storytelling. Those topics are not explored that much and can bother viewers, but in my case I received those as an innovative storytelling that attracts attention. I can only say that visually is one of the best films to watch right now in theaters, it is everything a montage that leaves me speechless. Truly amazing. The score, cinematography, production design, costumes, makeup, even the animation it has are top-notch.
