Hugo ★★★★½

Marvelous, spellbinding, beautifully-rendered love letter to cinema. It's amazing just how versatile a director Scorsese is, as this is unlike anything he's ever made before yet feels as though he's been making fantasy epics like this for years. It's hard not to be charmed by this movie, especially if have as much adoration for movies themselves as Scorsese clearly does.
