SilverDyrewolf’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is my favorite Wes Anderson film. Anderson's symmetrical style and this stop-motion picture book story are perfect for each other. It's a kid's movie, but there's plenty for everybody to love. The message is simplistic enough for a child to understand what is being told, but there is enough to chew on so that older audiences don't get bored. I mean, how can someone even get bored with, let alone dislike this playful mix of characters, cinematography, and music.
