The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★★

An utter delight from the first second till the credits roll, Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is an endlessly charismatic ensemble feature with wonderful performances and enchanting characters. Outside of the aforementioned elements, what makes this movie so spectacular is Anderson's vision. The stylistic choice to make this movie look a film from the Golden era of cinema, with panning shots and quick zooms, is filled with so much charm. The cinematography paired with the direction is so well-choreographed and gorgeously shot. To call each frame beautiful is an understatement. The combination of slapstick and dark comedy gels so great together, making for some hilarious jokes and frequent humorous situations. I absolutely adore this film and so annoyed that I hadn't watched it sooner.
