”The film makes faint gestures at the popular conventions of a gangster movie while constantly being sidetracked by the bizarre behavioral details and heightened mundanity that were this particular filmmaker’s stock and trade. It’s a movie about a testy, outsider artist and his gang of misfit collaborators, the John Cassavetes biopic once removed.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 04/03/2019

“So is Dumbo supposed to be Burton’s cautionary tale about throwing one’s lot in with such sinister corporations? A Disney blockbuster ending with celebratory shots of a theme park in flames would seem to be a statement of some sort, and if Tim Burton was still the filmmaker he was back in the 1990s I bet he probably could have pulled it off.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 04/01/2019
