Scorsese's 3-D masterpiece

Salon raves about Martin Scorsese's new 3-D film, Hugo, set in a 1930s Parisian railway station:

Scorsese and his usual team of technical and design collaborators — let’s mention cinematographer Robert Richardson and production designer Dante Ferretti, for starters — create a gorgeous storybook vision of Paris, circa 1930, and moves us through it with fluid cinematic ease. Scorsese isn’t using 3-D as a stunt or a value-added effect but as a storytelling tool, a method of infusing his tale with humor, humanity and often breathtaking depth.

The movie is also a tribute to early pioneers of filmmaking, including Georges Méliès (someone every student of film history knows). Any Scorsese film is worth seeing, but this one sounds like a must-see.
