Entertainment Weekly - 05/22/2009
"THE BROTHERS BLOOM is a con-artist movie....We expect to be played, but the twist is that we're also touched -- which, the film implies, is the cinema's own form of deception." -- Grade: B
USA Today - 05/15/2009
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "THE BROTHERS BLOOM has it all: charming romance, jaunty adventure story, witty dialogue, gorgeous cinematography and superb performances."
A.V. Club - 05/14/2009
"[The director has] upped the ambition, using a light, stylish touch and a David Mamet-inspired hall-of-mirrors plot to comment on the nature of storytelling..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/20/2009
"Rian Johnson's THE BROTHER'S BLOOM lets us in on the con and then fools us. It does that in an interesting way."
Washington Post - 05/22/2009
"THE BROTHERS BLOOM is all about exploding forms, tropes and archetypes. But it's also a charmer, a witty sandbagging of one's resistance to fairy tales..."
Uncut - 07/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he characters are appealing....THE BROTHERS BLOOM is inventive..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2010
"Devices honed by Wes Anderson -- snappily narrated and edited cutaways to episodes gilded with quirk -- are in full effect....The most interesting part of the film is often Weisz's performance."
Total Film - 11/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's enough heart, soul, flair and subtext to THE BROTHERS BLOOM to offset its jaunty hipster affectations..."
