"Sensitively observed....Meyer's assured handling of his appealing young performers stands out."Los Angeles Times "[A] smart, likable coming-of-age movie....Mr. Kingsley, with his sharp features and penetrating gaze, has a distinctively avian demeanor..."New York Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "The young actors shine revealing lights on their characters. The pale, gangly Smit-McPhee gives David an awkwardness that is endearing while also letting him grow into his own."Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A} tender and gentle coming-of-age story, as well as a meditation on grief and letting go....There's an innocence here, a real sweetness."RogerEbert.com34.75278

4 stars out of 5 -- "Middle East megalomania, antisemitism, sexism, racism and war-mongering are given side-splitting censure in THE DICTATOR, a superb vehicle for Sacha Baron Cohen's over-the-top socio-political outrageousness."Box Office 3 stars out of 4 -- "Cohen's attack on the material is free-wheeling, his attitude is anarchist, and he's more good-humored than in BORAT and BRUNO."Chicago Sun-Times "Sacha Baron Cohen's gleefully scabrous portrait of a fictional North African tyrant called Admiral General Aladeen starts high..."Wall Street Journal "Faris is the film's standout....The kind of true-believer purity she brings to Zoey's eco-terrorizing rants comes close to stealing Baron Cohen's comic thunder."Los Angeles Times "THE DICTATOR leaves you laughing helplessly. It starts at outrageous and rockets on from there."Rolling Stone "The film has a better developed plot than BRUNO and a more defined structure than BORAT....THE DICTATOR also has its moments of slyly clever satire."USA Today "[With] Cohen in all his long-legged, language-mangling glory: THE DICTATOR works both as satire and as comedy..."Movieline 3 stars out of 5 -- "A film like THE DICTATOR lives by the strength of its gags, and Cohen & co deliver a relentless barrage of politically incorrect rib-ticklers."Total Film30.40868
