The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★★½

Not quite in Wes Anderson's top tier for me - reserved only for Moonrise Kingdom and Tenenbaums, for now - but it comes real close. A wickedly funny, joyously watchable Russian doll of a story, packed with wonderful performances and some of the most beautiful cinematography ever committed to film. Every last shot, last frame, is finely honed and meticulously coloured; it's 100 minutes of flip-book photography, and every snap's a keeper.
