The Royal Tenenbaums Reviews

Chris Barsanti
PopMatters

Each one of the Tenenbaums might be alone, and quietly miserable in a vaguely contented way, but at least they're lonely as a family. That's some kind of solace.

The Royal Tenenbaums remains Wes Anderson's biggest commercial success; it's also one of his best films, and the Criterion Collection has brought it into their high-definition stable with great aplomb.

Had The Royal Tenenbaums flown any lower on the comic radar screen, it could have passed for drama.

DVD Verdict

Wes Anderson manages to balance comedy and tragedy effectively, and in the end, succeeds in what Danny Glover refers to in his interview segment as celebrating the spirit of people.

Fans of it should go out and buy it immediately. Those of you who aren't fans yet should probably rent it--then buy it afterwards.
