  1. 100
    Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.
  2. In Wonderland, Winterbottom has found a script worthy of his passion.
  3. A crushingly sad, beautiful film.
  4. 75
    Winterbottom ("Welcome to Sarajevo," "Go Now") has filmed Wonderland with a hand-held 16 millimeter camera, lending the production an air of scrappy immediacy that is often arrestingly at odds with Michael Nyman's overheated musical score.
  5. 75
    There's enough here to make anyone who enjoyed -- if that's the right word -- "Happiness" or "Magnolia" splendidly unhappy.
  6. As an interweave of crosscut miniplots, this isn't nearly as interesting or as pleasurable as Jeremy Podeswa's recent "The Five Senses."
  7. 40
    So bereft of hope... that it's a chore to withstand.

    This is worth a 10 for the soundtrack alone.

    Extraordinaria película, buen guión, buenos actores, excelente música. Genial. Una historia sencilla, pero muy bien contada. Muy recomendable. Una de las mejores películas de los últimos años. Expand
