The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★★

It took me way longer then I would wanted it to, but I finally watched The Grand Budapest Hotel. I haven’t seen many Wes Anderson films, but I really don’t think any of his other movies will top this off. This is everything I want from a Anderson film and much more. It is masterfully shot and is really just the most visually pleasing film. Like any film from Wes Anderson, the colors really stick out, basically leaping off the screen. This film has pretty much the greatest cast. I really can’t think of a movie with this many top billing actors. Every performance is absolutely stunning. The costume design and makeup give so much personality to every character. The same goes for the set design, which is basically a character in and of itself. The film has a linear plot, but this movie blends so many genres together that the film always feels so random. You really can never guess what’s going to happen next. Every single joke lands and they land hard. This was just one of the most exhilarating experiences and I’ll never forget this movie. Easily a new favorite and I hope to rewatch it soon!

This has nothing to do with the film, but I wrote an actual review for On The Waterfront. I’m not sure if people saw it because my review that didn’t even talk about the film got more likes then my actual review for the film. I’m not begging for likes, I just wanted to make sure you’ll didn’t miss that. Because it’s weird that my non review got more likes then my actual review. Ok you can go now.
