    Visually attractive, easy to follow. Three storiettes in one. Refreshing.

    Weirdly wonderful a La Wes Anderson

    Absolutely exceptional! A fine piece of art from start to finish! Everything is impeccable, the deliver is touching y, the photography is charming and unique, the story is interesting, the cast is perfectly curated! An sadly underated master piece!

    It took me a moment to get into its rhythms, but this series of vignettes is classic Wes Anderson.

    A good idea for a movie but very poor execution. The film tells three short stories, and I feel only the first delivers. 'The Concrete Masterpiece' presents an interesting message by the end, which makes the movie start strong. After that, the film falls apart. 'Revisions to a Manifesto' is truly awful; incredibly difficult to follow, with really nothing interesting being presented. The final story 'The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner' is slightly better than the former, but not as good as the first story. The bulk of it is weak but the scene at the end between Jeffrey Wright and Steve Park saves it. The cast is great across each story, which is a plus. Also, the Wes Anderson visual style is present per usual, and everyone and everything looks fantastic. However, the film jumps between black and white sequences and in-color sequences, which contributes nothing to the story or themes of the movie. It just seems to be in there for no reason at all.

    French Dispatch" is a disappointing example of a filmmaker experimenting too much. The several different narratives through out the film just muddle the meaning of the film. The Wes Andersen charm still exists within the movie but it feels like the characters are wandering through the various plots without any proper resolutions.

    The French Dispatch ist eine Anthologie Komödie von Wes Anderson…The French Dispatch erweckt eine Sammlung von Geschichten aus der letzten Ausgabe eines amerikanischen Magazins, das in einer fiktiven französischen Stadt des 20. Jahrhunderts erscheint… Eine herrliche, visuell skurrile Komödie, die mit faszinierenden Charakteren inszeniert wurde… und alles mit einem dezenten bezaubernden Soundtrack untermalt…

    This movie is all about its strong artistic stance and its dreamy cast. I really wanted to love this movie but somehow it lacks the je-ne-sais quoi that would have made it spark.

    The Revision Manifesto story was magnificent.
