Review: 5 stars (of five)
Martin Scorcese’s first foray into the kind of film where a pen holds the secret of a boy’s fondest hopes, rather than get shoved through the neck of a mafia thug, is pure cinema magic. It’s a love letter to, and doctoral thesis on, the magic of early cinema and the imagination in general. It’s done in 3D but proves without a doubt that not only does this film not need that very modern gimmick, but no film with a true heart and imagination...
