Sam’s review published on Letterboxd:
Well, today’s my birthday. Normally, I watch my favorite movie at that moment, but seeing how they’re both emotionally draining, I decided to watch this. And well, it still holds up well. This has been one that’s been in my life on and off for the last few years, and I didn’t really rediscover it until last year. While I considered myself a Wes Anderson fan, this is what made me fall in Love with him. Everything about it works so well, even too the details in the animation. This is such an amazing film to watch on my birthday, it’s really great to see how fun and simple this movie is.
