Viktor Prentovski’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love movies like this, filled with magical moments of hope and joy.
I saw Elf a few years ago for the first time and I really liked it. Now, on rewatch, I love it.
Will Ferrell is brilliant here, one of his better comic performances. I also loved Zooey Deschanel's character. She was really cute and was perfect in every scene. If that was really her singing voice in the movie, I am amazed.
Elf brings my Christmas spirit to the max. I am not a huge fan of Christmas, mostly because it's not celebrated as much in my country as it is in America, but I love Christmas themed movies, and this is one of the best of its kind.
The movie looks really good and I am pretty sure that New York, especially when it's covered with snow, is the most magical looking city in the movies.
That magical time of the year is coming, less so in my country, but I can watch movies that capture it!
