    ★★★½

    This was my 2nd Sofia Coppola experience so I don't have much to compare to, but I did enjoy it. Unfortunately the trailers gave away too much so there was no mystery or thrill for me but I sat thru it until the end because of the gorgeous cinematography and how excellently the atmosphere was built. Not the mention the lead actresses did an excellent job in portraying their characters. I would have liked the end to be a bit more explosive or hit harder, but I still enjoyed the experience.

    How accurately were these events told? No idea. But it could have been a much better film, and a more exciting one too. Some celebrity cameos would have been great. I would also have been more interested if it showed the psychological reasons behind the events. Maybe explore the teens' relationships more (jealousy? greed?). Would not recommend or watch again.

    Just excellent. Follows no formula at all, very original, raw and real. Amazing performances especially from Edie Falco and Steve Buscemi. Brilliant. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    Easily one of my favorites of the year! A story as beautiful as the stop motion that tells it. I was intrigued ever since I first saw the trailers and it definitely did not disappoint. Sometimes with "animated" movies, there is a bit of predictability but you will not get that with this film. The humor is very tasteful and not overdone, and the magical aspects/effects add plenty to what made this such an amazing watch. See this one before it leaves theaters!
