The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★

"I don't know what sort of cream they've put on you down at the morgue, but I want some."

I cannot stress enough how much I love Wes Anderson and merely everything he does. This was no exception and I'm upset it took me this long to watch the entire film in full. I had always seen bits and pieces, but never the full movie! It's extremely hard for me to place this on a list of my favorite films in order of which I adore because I simply adore them all. From the whimsical score, the flamboyant outfits (I freaking love the purples and the pinks in this one) and most importantly, the unique dialogue that comes with any Anderson film, not to mention the vivid story he paints with every scene from start to finish. The cast is great, and I must say, I think Willem Dafoes character, Jopling, was my favorite in this one. Just an all around heartfelt story with a sweet ending that made me feel nice and warm inside, as do most of Andersons work. Happy to have finally gotten around to this one.
