The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★½

I watched this once back in early 2018 and I thought it was fine but it didn’t blow me away, mostly because I found the style a bit jarring at a time where I wasn’t used to different styles of filmmaking. If it wasn’t obvious from the score, I loved it this time. Wes’ style is really growing on me and it makes me even more pissed off that I was outbid on eBay for the Criterion Blu-Rays of The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore (I was winning for the whole time and this sneaky fucker grabbed it from me 10 seconds before the bid ended... IT WAS ONLY £15 FOR BOTH!!!).
