    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. 80
    A frothy, sexy, '60s delight with a movie lover's heart.
  3. Good-natured and fun, the Austin Powers silliness of the era shines through, and Coppola family art director Dean Tavoularis ("Apocalypse Now," "The Godfather" trilogy) makes the film -- and its kitschy film-within-the-film -- look consistently terrific.

    A certain sexiness underlines even the dullest tangents, bouncing along to the all-too-essential groovy soundtrack.
  5. 60
    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.
  6. 50
    Pretentious and self-indulgent -- those two words come to mind when considering CQ.

    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
