Critic Review - New Yorker

In Hugo, the hero has a terrifying dream, perhaps an unconscious recollection of that event. Reality, filmed illusion, and dreams are so intertwined that only an artist, playing merrily with echoes, can sort them into a scheme of delight.

A tour de force for Scorsese. Smokes other directors of this genre. Hugo could turn into a classic. An ovation in the theatre.
