When I first hear about this movie. I became quite curious about the damned thign because it was directed by Wes Anderson but also skeptical because I'm not a huge fan of Roald Dhal's work. On top of that, even though I admired so far Wes Anderson's work, I have to admit that I actually always had a hard time to connect with his movies. Indeed, they always looked rather impressive and there was always this interesting quirky mood but, so far, it all felt rather superficial to me. Well, at last, with this flick, the guy finally managed to blow me away. Indeed, there was in fact no reason to worry and it was much better than I expected. Basically, it was one of the most original animated movies I have ever seen, it really looked gorgeous and I just loved the dialogues and all these funny characters. I especially loved the first half which was pretty much pitch perfect and really hilarious and, while it lost some steam during the second half, it was still pretty damned entertaining. By now, I have seen this movie so many times and it gets better each time again in my opinion. Anyway, to conclude, I really loved the damned thing, it is in my opinion the best thing delivered by Wes Anderson so far and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
