Hugo, 2011.

Directed by Martin Scorsese.

Starring Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield, Sacha Baron Cohen and Chloe Grace Moretz.


A young orphaned boy becomes wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.

Hugo is one of those strange movies. One of those movies that you know probably deserves a couple of those little gold statues, but at the same time you can wander out of the cinema and not remember anything specific about it. It’s a love letter to older cinema, older films that deserves to stay in the memories of film lovers the world over, but at the same time Hugo is forgettable. The older films that it pays obvious platitudes to are cheaper, worse looking affairs. But they also have a lot more magic.

Not to say I didn’t like Hugo. It’s a shame when this happens, but because it’s Martin Scorsese »
