Solid 3 1/2 star movie, but I almost bumped it a half star just for Walken’s performance. He’s at the top of his game. A lot of good supporting performances in this, too. Notably, David Caruso is excellent.
I let my 10-year-old stay up late with me last night and watch this movie. She'd never seen a Wes Anderson film before. I can't explain what a treat it was to watch her giggle with joy and delight throughout. Being a parent is incredibly frustrating and a pain in the ass a lot of the time, but there are few greater experiences in life than the vicarious pleasure you get when introducing something wonderful to your kid.
