The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★★★½

So, so, so precious in every way, right down to the self-conscious Academy aspect ratio. But marvelously done, at least as a visual pastime, if not art. Actually, though it’s ostensibly about the heyday of magazine journalism, it reminded me of paging through one of those copiously illustrated coffee table “The Art of…” movie books. I’ll have to see it a second time to be sure I know how I feel about it though.
