Mike’s review published on Letterboxd:
Visually striking, meticulously crafted and beautifully told. The French Dispatch might very well be not only my favorite Wes Anderson but one of the very few films that deeply understands what is cinema and what you can achieve with it. I really don’t know how to explain why I ended up loving this movie so much. Maybe it’s the unapologetic way in which Anderson makes it or the ingenious, dynamic mode it is structured or the jaw-dropping visuals choices or the nuanced, well-balanced stories. Or how every cast member delivers a finely tuned performance. Or how organic the storytelling felt. I just know I had a wonderful time in this intricate beautiful world and I wanna revisit it time and time again.
