Not many films make me feel the way I felt when I watched Grand Budapest Hotel. One of those rare examples is Brothers Bloom, which is not only one of my top ten favorite movies of all time, but also has Adrien Brody in it.
|They really knew how to make this guy look ultra cool!|
|One of my favorite color combinations ever!|
I think positive criticism is good.
But this film was just BAM!
So good it made me forget words.
Now if Wes Anderson isn’t your cup of tea don’t expect to get your mind blown, but I can guarantee you, you will enjoy it!
|Believe me it is great!|
I knew nothing about it so I didn’t know what to expect, and the fact that it is a comedy took me by surprise.
I also really loved the political under tones of it, which he added in a subtle but also very obvious way. Living in Berlin at this time makes me really identify with the changes shown in the film.
But let me stop here and just say, whichever films you like, I can guarantee you will enjoy it, maybe even love it!
|M. Gustave: You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.|
And here I leave you with a little featurette, without spoilers on the production of the Grand Budapest Hotel:
