All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (3)

  • Overall, the documentary's strengths lie in its photography, art direction, sound mixing and editing. Other than that, there's not much substance.

  • The film can be seen as simply a kind of impressionistic travelogue, but it slowly and irresistibly conveys that we're also seeing a rite of passage.

    January 4, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Tchoupitoulas" is a jewel-bright whoosh of a ride through nighttime New Orleans.

    December 20, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is alive with the risk and curiosity of youth, and unapologetic in insisting that the pursuit of fun can be a profound and transformative experience.

    December 6, 2012 | Rating: 5/5
  • The Rosses are happy to trade cohesion for a rich, varied immersion in New Orleans nightlife. It's less a documentary than a feature-length vibe.

    December 6, 2012 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Questions about the literal truth of Tchoupitoulas are thorny and perhaps besides the point. After all, the filmmakers aren't hiding the artifice.

Audience Reviews for Tchoupitoulas

  • Dec 09, 2012
    "Tchoupitoulas" is an engaging blend of documentary and fiction, set around three brothers, Bryan, Kentrell and William, and their dog, as they take the ferry across the Mississippi for a nighttime visit to New Orleans, especially the French Quarter, with a special emphasis on food and music, both of which resplendent. Events flow naturally through the night smoothly with the boys enjoying their adventures. The only exception to that is the mad dash for the last ferry which definitely feels staged. And seeing as there are things too adult for their young eyes, the movie goes off on its own to explore the ladies of burlesque, some times getting a little too distracted for its own good. Of the three boys, we get to know William the best through his thoughts and dreams, in his case winning six Super Bowl rings. Unlike other kids of his age, he seems genuinely interested in playing the recorder which is usually just foisted onto all children, comparing notes with a young flutist at one point.

    Documentary following three boys who miss the ferry home and are stranded alone in New Orleans overnight. An abstract tribute to childhood wonder; nine year old William, a curious dreamer and budding poet, becomes more interesting than the carnival city and its street performers.
