The Grand Budapest HotelPosted: June 6, 2014
I was going to do a full review of The Grand Budapest Hotel but I was too lazy to make screencaps, so here’s the quick version accompanied by unrelated outfit photos: it’s funnier than I expected, but while I like it, it doesn’t make me go “OMG amazeballs” (actually, nothing can make me say that. Ever. But you know what I mean) like some of his other movies. Then again, I’ve always been more partial to Wes Anderson’s drama/romance stuff (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) than his adventure stuff (The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited.) Besides, he is one of those directors you either love or you don’t, so if you’re a fan, you’ve probably watched this already and don’t need my opinion to convince you.
And hey, the outfit may not be as unrelated as it seems, because there is a symmetrical quality about it in my shirt and belt, and Wes Anderson’s visual style is all about symmetry, so… No? Stretching it too much? OK. Stopping now. Have a great weekend everybody!
