The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★★★★

It’s probably the best directed movie of his career but the May 68 stuff really rubbed me the wrong way yet it’s also ultimately his most clearly an outright cartoon—so much as to include an extended Tintin sequence—but it bothered me there. Defeatist, almost. I’m being too sensitive probably. Loved the other two major segments and felt the bookends were touching if a bit saccharine.
