Style over any semblance of substance
16 March 2019 | by gosling_richard-40091See all my reviews

There's honestly nothing in the movie story wise. Instead it's a film made like a love letter to the worst parts of Wes Anderson. Angles, gimmicks, kitsch - and repeat and repeat and repeat.

No pacing, no heart and no memorable moments

Very disappointing
