Movie Review: Hugo

[Another Sani Day]
Hugo is a sweet kiss to cinema and a strong stand for film preservation. It looks graceful and effortless but always very intricate in its set pieces and montages. Scorsese's deep blue and copper palette is exquisite and perfectly captures the spirit of the busy, old, sad and raptured Paris through the lensing of the train station from the viewpoint of a boy named Hugo Cabret. Very humanistic but will make one cinephile sob like baby. Definitely bound to become a children's film classic and the perfect film to affirm why, in the first place, we all are enchanted with the magic of cinema. 8.5/10


*2012 DAM NATION movie reviews will be a consolidation of capsule reviews from people who signed up before the year started. Ratings will change once the reviews start to come in.
