Inside Llewyn Davis
Dense, dreamlike fantasy isn't for every kid.
| Original Score: 3/5
The story is interesting, in a twisted fairytale sort of way, but the novelty of this dream world does eventually wear off, and we're left checking our watches.
| Original Score: 72/100
MirrorMask proves that a movie can be brilliant and awful at the same time.
| Original Score: 4/5
| Original Score: 7/10
This one-of-a-kind fantasy film may be seen as a classic someday, possibly quite soon.
| Original Score: 3/4
...one of those movies that might be improved immensely by the consumption of certain mood-altering substances.
| Original Score: B-
An impressive sheen on some familiar themes.
It is so fresh, so bold and so fantastical on the visual plane that it seems to re-invent the language of dreams and widen the possibilities of fantasy storytelling.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Leonidas walks this tightrope quite engagingly, showing us a girl on the cusp of womanhood, torn between two competing needs -- to become an adult, to remain a child, to vilify, to revere.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
This strange, imaginative children's adventure has a fantastic visual sense that looks like nothing you've seen
Too long, and too rich, for its own good, but clearly Gaiman and McKean were bursting with ideas. Those ideas fly all over the place, sometimes landing with a thunk, but more often taking the breath away.
| Original Score: 3/4
Luscious evidence that the look of modern fantasy cinema can amount to more than bald-faced Tim Burton swipes arriving 15 years after the fact.
It's a near-flawless marriage of content and form, a movie that kids, adults and graduate students of computer imagery will all have their own reasons to love.
| Original Score: 4/4
Emotionally direct and visually baroque, MirrorMask reminded me of Queen's epic songs, which find over-the-top ways to explore everyday situations.
An ideal cerebral escape for that advanced learner in your family who's biding time between Eragon and Harry Potter novels.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
looks as amazing as anything onscreen this year.
Gaiman's vision for the film is cluttered, but commendably ambitious, and he succeeds more than he fails in crafting an adventure/fantasy for thinking audiences.
| Original Score: B
