Stephen Georg’s review published on Letterboxd :
Hugo is a film about an orphan who runs the train station clocks in Paris. Over the course of 2+ hours you'll keep asking yourself, "where is this going?" A majority of the film is just a setup to the actual plot of the film, and nothing I ever saw coming. It's an enjoyable (if not long-winded at times) watch, and I'd recommend it, especially if you've taken a Film History class.
