Topsy-Turvy reminds us that, in any age, creative expression is at once the most personal and most communal of enterprises.

San Francisco Chronicle
Part of the appeal of Topsy-Turvy is its generosity about human folly and shortcomings. Its wistfulness is very touching.

USA Today
One of the year's best movies and certainly its most delightful screen surprise.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A triumph.

Some movies delight you. Some stimulate and provoke. Some enlighten and inform. And some simply hand you a rousing good time-- does all of that and more.

Christian Science Monitor
Brilliantly acted, sumptuously filmed, and overflowing with mellifluous music.

A tribute to anyone who ever picked up a score, a pen, a paintbrush or a grease pencil - or a movie camera.

Rolling Stone
The year's most beguilling and touching surprise. Bravo.

A hive of broad, brilliant performances.

Mr. Showbiz
Topsy-Turvy is flawless, borne along by a savagely witty screenplay that Leigh directs like the gears of a clock.
