    The film deserves some kind of honor for its campy originality, smart and funny dialogue, and provocative yet sensitive look at the making of a film circa 1969.
  2. Exceptionally likable and affecting as well as entertaining.
  3. CQ is a movie for movie-lovers, by a movie-lover: Roman Coppola, son of Francis Ford and a successful commercial and video director in his own right, making a witty, whimsical feature debut.

    It looks great -- thanks in large part to production designer Dean Tavoularis and Wes Anderson cinematographer Robert Yeoman -- but just as importantly, it looks like it's interesting. Ultimately, it's not, but that almost doesn't matter.

    A triumph of art direction over narrative, but what art direction!

    Triumphs over its own trendiness only by being vapid and superficial.

    Roman Coppola's first film has sympathetic aims but is distressingly lacking in flair, style, wit or fun.

    This movie has some hits as well as some misses. Roman Coppola's is ambitious but his direction is unpolished. He complicates the film This movie has some hits as well as some misses. Roman Coppola's is ambitious but his direction is unpolished. He complicates the film more than he needed too. Decent effort to recreate the era, and I liked the art direction and score. Giancarlo Giannini is memorable. Expand
