Wes Anderson has always had an inkling for the whimsical and colorful. The Grand Budapest Hotel, his 8th full length film, ratchets both up to great effect in one of the more delightful movies of the decade. It’s undeniable that Anderson has one of the most distinctive film making styles of any director working right now, there are very few directors who you immediately tell who they are based off of a single shot, Anderson is one of them. This is also a beautiful film. The bright color tones and distinctive backdrops leap off of the screen, while his dialogue remains as witty as ever. It’s always a joy to see Anderson fire on all cylinders and The Grand Budapest Hotel is no exception.
