Distinguished only by the fact that co-writer-directors Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse convinced the great Michael Caine to costar in this thudding mishmash. Full Review

3 stars out of 4 -- DEAR DICTATOR is the rare high-concept coming-of-age story with enough warmth and smart-ass charm to make it accessible for a fairly wide cross-section of moviegoers.

Pleasant enough to watch, even innocuous, "Dear Dictator" is something that gets worse the more you think about it. Full Review

The film's premise seems loaded with comic possibilities, but silly scenes overwhelm the story. Plus, Michael Caine is dreadfully miscast. Full Review

Rating: D+ -- Ineffective, intermittently painful attempt at world-weary funny business. Full Review
Mar 21, 2018
Rating: 3/10 -- Dear Dictator makes you hope for something subversive, and there occasional flashes of potential, but then it always falls back into the easiest, most obvious route. Full Review
