The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★★

candy-colored aesthetics and snowy picturesque landscapes all delicately framed with the articulate eye of the visionary Wes Anderson. this is, quite honestly, one of the greatest films ever made, a technical achievement like no other coupled with a wholly engrossing and masterfully concocted narrative filled with Anderson’s trademark charm and wit, all set to the lovely tone of Alexandre Desplat’s pitch-perfectly soothing score. sometimes i wonder if we’ll ever get a director as consistent as Anderson, and films like this only strengthen that statement. a poetic ode to those who impact our lives the most and their lasting legacy on our memories. ❄️
