The 9th Life of Louis Drax

3.5 out of 5 stars

What surprises me most is not that the Guillermo Del Toro/Tim Burton infused children’s tale turns out to be more of an adult whodunit thriller – and a good one too even though yours truly did guess the ending, not that I mind when it makes sense, but I digress – but that what I thought initially to be whiplash-inducing tonal unevenness of the film turns out to be a misjudgement on my part and that all those various elements and strands (murder mystery; family drama; quasi-supernatural fantasy; horror and probably more) come together in the final reels of the film producing something almost magically coherent and fascinating to watch. 174 more words
