The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★½

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 
8.6/10
