Todd Haynes United States, 2017

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.
