“An ideal of down-to-earth American cosmopolitanism, an approach to writing, culture and the world that is at once democratic and sophisticated, animated by curiosity and leavened with irony. The movie is a love letter to that spirit, and also a ghost story.” – NYTimes
“Perhaps Anderson’s best film to date.” – The New Yorker
“This is Anderson at his most crowd-pleasing.” – Times (UK)
“The film’s formal inventiveness pushes the envelope, even for Anderson.” – Hyperallergic
Wes Anderson and Jeffrey Wright talk about the film with David Remnick on The New Yorker Radio Hour.
