Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel is a fast-paced, inconceivably fun, beauteously calculated, delectable exemplar of simplistic storytelling. If there’s one attribute that Anderson beholds better than every other director out there it’s his raw aptness to intimately compel his massively talented cast into brewing out unforgettably iconic characters.
The Grand Budapest Hotel is not only another delightful banquet for solicitors of Anderson’s filmography but arguably, Anderson’s most aesthetically breathtaking and furthermore, waggishly funniest piece yet. Every frame is like a painting and every second jailed within this heartwarming bundle of joy is quick-witted ultimately making this a fantasy that’s virtually impossible to dislike.
Verdict Change: A —> A-
Is it bad that I didn’t recognize Tilda Swinton, Mathieu Amalric, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, and Léa Seydoux the first time I watched this?
