Editorial Reviews

New Orleans Times-Picayune
“Hugo, an utterly beautiful film-both visually and emotionally-and itself an enchanting gift from Scorsese to film fans everywhere….This kind of cinematic delight is a rarity, a warm and masterfully crafted reminder of why we love to go to the movies in the first place.”
Time magazine
“Hugo is a fable as sensitive and powerful as any Scorsese film since The Age of Innocence nearly two decades ago. Bursting with earned emotion, Hugo is a mechanism that comes to life at the turn of a key in the shape of a heart.”
