Hugo

Hugo ★★★★

Martin Scorsese's trip through film history...for kids.
Robert De Niro is 11 year old Hugo.
Leonardo DiCaprio is Chloe Grace Moretz.
Joe Pesci is Sascha Baron Cohen.
I'm not sure kids will actually like this except for the bright colors, but it's a visual spectacle that actually deserved the 3d treatment that every movie from the 2020-teens got for whatever fucking reason (Midnight in Paris...in 3d)!!!
A welcome departure for Scorsese and the violence is intense but never exploitative.
