The Grand Budapest Hotel

I just saw Wes Anderson’s most recent film and I have to say I absolutely adored it!! There’s something about the way Anderson unravels the story in a gripping yet light way, and through such hauntingly beautiful cinematography with the perfect eclectic soundtrack…truly amazing! His stories make you feel both melancholy and thrillingly existentialist at the same time. It doesn’t hurt that the actors are excellent, except for Owen Wilson who I cannot take seriously in any movie and disturbs the time travel that Anderson has quietly taken you through, and instead sends you back into present day with the bitter taste in your mouth of “ick…Hollywood!” But I suppose Anderson has allegiances he cannot break. Anyway…bravo Wes Anderson! The Grand Budapest a Hotel is another wonderfully charming masterpiece…criticism of fascism and all!
