Hugo is another departure for Scorsese as he veers in to something I would categorize as a family adventure film with a small twist of mystery thrown in. I'm happy to report that the film is an absolute success with it's timeless story of youth and the desire to dream. As a fan of film, it's fictionalized lesson in silent film making was a breathtaking ode to the history of movies and lends a brief glimpse inside the films that influenced Scorsese's formidable career in the craft.
Hugo may not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed myself. I think that parents and kids will like to watch this one together. It's an ambitious piece that furthers Scorsese's legacy as one of the best directors ever.
