T_Raves’s review published on Letterboxd:
While I do prefer Wes Anderson’s animated films over his live action ones, Grand Budapest wasn’t bad.
The cinematography is exquisite. The pacing didn’t drag. The acting was actually great. Damn how many A-Listers are in this movie. Ralph Fiennes shines in this movie.
“When the destiny of a great fortune is at stake, men's greed spreads like a poison in the bloodstream. Uncles, nephews, cousins, in-laws of increasingly tenuous connection. The old woman's distantrelations had come foraging out of the woodwork.”
I liked the dialogue spoken by the characters especially Gustave and Zero. The film keeps its tone in place and makes the audience laugh, sad and engaging. Well done Wes Anderson
