  1. Maar's rating of the film Wonderstruck

  2. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Wonderstruck probably delivers the most heartfelt and feel good emotional punch of all of 2017 while also being playful and intelligent with its cinematic style. One of my favorite 2017 gems.

  3. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Structurally a really well crafted film, and the score is quite alright. Other than that I wasn't really all that impressed.

  4. bryanvmh's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    I'd like to think of the model sections of the film as Superstar 2: New York Boogaloo

  5. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    7.5/10, my review: "an earnest project pulls its back into a dual time-frames narrative with gumption challenging audience’s accepted optic and aural rules."

  6. Machupi's rating of the film Wonderstruck

  7. Renton47's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    WS is outsider art operating well within an accessible framework. In fact it offers such a compendium of 'wonders', designed to show how passion is instigated in the world, that I ALMOST understand finding it messy. Haynes achieves a synthesis with so many forms here (silent/70s/avant-garde) that I was floored before it even connected our love for the arts with a belief in great cosmic coincidences.

  10. William R Clark's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    3.6, Haynes is still THE filmmaker. I don't think anyone (alive) could have made a movie this successful, out of these materials, in the 2017 filmscape. Bully for him! We lose a little transgressive fun (especially in the score, acting department), but gain a slew of careful production design, expert cinematography, and sound/silence experiments.

  11. Luis Pires's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    This was extra sad because of the scene with Michelle Williams when the kid asks her why she doesn't talk about the father and I immediately thought of Ledger and my heart imploded.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Haynes' latest is an adaptation of the Brian Selznick novel telling two similar tales fifty years apart in his usual technically meticulous style. What's missing this time is the emotional connect which makes this film seem much longer than its runtime. The final section comes together well but its laborious getting there. One can't fault the film on style or its wonderful time period reconstructions. A rare miss

  13. Kamran's rating of the film Wonderstruck

  14. Jason's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    WONDERSTRUCK is a Todd Haynes film. It is a masterpiece of design. Surprised? I didn't think so. Yeas, its not only about museums, it's about "the museum." But much more: the subject (and object) of this picture is serendipity and revelation. Something this earnest and open-hearted was liable to be a bit emotionally clumsy. All the more endearing for that, say I. Clumsiness excused or not: packs an ENORMOUS payload.

  15. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Glad Haynes went in a different direction here making two period pieces in one yet there are images that also hearten back to his Karen Carpenter story. This may not be his most emotionally satisfying movie but it had layers most "children's films" never even aim for.

  16. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    It gives me zero satisfaction to say Haynes made his worst film, and despite his background in transgressive cinema, he's perfectly suited to a kids movie about juggled timelines, emotionally resonant artifacts, and children feeling their way towards an identity. But after a wonderful first act, it loses its way, bogged down in the slow, suspense-free linear quests that can befall kids book adaptations.

  17. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    A minor, but enjoyable entry in Todd Haynes' filmography

  18. Des Horne's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    So rarely does a film begin so unconvincingly only to eventually win me over. Not sure how Haynes pulled this off. "This" being the well-trodden path of '70s nostalgia in contemporary American commercial cinema.

  19. Louis Robert's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    The narrative of this film was at times really incoherent and out of pace with lengthy moments, but the conclusion really saved this movie with a stunning and inspiring life tale.

  20. juanitarrr's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Unbearable. sorry Mr Haynes, after Carol, this is pretty deceitful.

  21. Maribou's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Nice diorama sequence but oh my what a stinker

  22. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    CINEMA, DCP _ Selznick wrote a novel for children and it looks altogether like a great Disney film (but here produced by Amazon). The dialogue between the two parts via editing is clever - and Haynes cares to produce images that discuss with other films (Far from Heaven, Mildred Pierce). All his cinema is here at work, the melodrama, the avant-garde, even the puppets. Highly personal but not always on track.

  23. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Wonderstruck

    Haynes' film is, in part, about isolation, about people (kids, here) who are unable to comfortably navigate our world. Each and every one of his films grapples with a kind of alienation, and Wonderstruck, although more tender and perhaps more accessible than the rest of his oeuvre, never feels like anything but a rich Todd Haynes picture.
