Grand Budapest hotel by director Wes Anderson, lived up exactly to be zany trailer it was represented by.
To me the film echoed with Monty Python, Stanley Kubrick and Scooby-doo.
The cast has a few cameos led by Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel an uneventful unneeded, Owen Wilson.
Ralph Fiennes is a delightful pleasure in his absurd role as the Grand Budapest Hotel’s main man and gigalo to the affirm.
Newcomer, Tony Revolori held his own with his custom drawn ever-changing mustache.
I loved Grand Budapest’s fast, almost cartoon like pacing of some of the scenes with John Cleeseian peekaboo shots.
I felt like Wes Anderson had Monty Python’s Holy Grail in his head.
Kubrick’s The Shining also left an impression during the chase scenes in the hotel in the way it was shot.
An over the top sleigh chase scene was slapsticky Scooby at it’s best.
Willem Dafoe and Adrian Brody play the bad guys, as any bad scooby villian would. I mean that in the best way I can.
F.Murray Abraham and Jude Law lead us through the tale of a boys journey from lobby boy to magnate.
I really liked the look of the film, from the colors and tones to the sets.
This film took me on an adventure I’d like to do again.
Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel- book a visit.
