MOVIE REVIEW: HUGO (Martin Scorsese, 2011)


hugo_ver9

Sometimes it’s hard to explain why one loves the movies. Personally, it’s the magic of filmmaking that I adore. And nothing is more appropriate than the word “magical” to describe Hugo.

Here’s a film that proudly shows its love for cinema while disguised as a story about a young boy finding his place in this world. There are so many moments here where you just sit and stare at the screen enthralled by what you’re seeing. Some scenes are not even designed to make you cry, but the mere power of the images engulf you and you find yourself tearing up.

With excellent performances by Asa Butterfield, Chloe Grace Moretz, Ben direction of the Martin Scorsese, this is truly one of the best films of 2011.
