Francis Ford Coppola's self-funded passion-project, Megalopolis, just screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and the first reviews for the sci-fi epic have now been shared online.

Depending on which critics you choose to trust, the movie is either a masterpiece, an unmitigated disaster, or somewhere in between!

We'll update as soon as an early Rotten Tomatoes score is up, but for now, have a read through the mixed reactions below.

"An accident destroys a New York City-like metropolis already in decay. Caesar, an idealist, aims to rebuild the city as a sustainable utopia, while the venal mayor, Frank Cicero, has other plans. Coming between the opposing men and their visions is Frank’s socialite daughter, Julia. Tired of the attention and power she was born with, Julia searches for her life’s meaning."

Megalopolis stars Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, Dustin Hoffman, and D.B. Sweeney.
