"It's fitting that a recurring piece of pastry plays a role in the story, since Wes Anderson seems to be daring us to view his work as mere confection, while offering subtle evidence that there's more at play," says Jesse Cataldo from Slant Magazine.

Michael Leader of Film4 echoed the praise for the director, as he thinks, "Wes Anderson's post-Fantastic Mr Fox whimsy hits its stride as storybook style meets thematic substance in this gorgeous, joyful, yet far from featherlight end-of-an-era yarn."

"Another meticulously stylish and deadpan Wes Anderson movie that walks the fine line between masterpiece and folly", adds Damon Wise of Empire Magazine.
