A crime-drama about a family of outlaws. The story falls a bit flat but at least they got Brendan Gleeson and Michael Fassbender playing father and son. Quite an excellent combo which saves a lot. Other strengths include some beautiful imagery and the score written by The Chemical Brothers.
What a wonderful rewatch. I always enjoyed the story, which is fast-paced and constantly amusing, but this time I was more invested in the characters and found the ending more moving than I did the first time around. I like Wes Anderson's visual style and Robert Yeoman's camerawork very much in this one, and the dialogue is fantastic. Ralph Fiennes is great, and I think M. Gustave is his finest role in years. This is my favorite Wes Anderson film so far. Easily.
