The Grand Budapest Hotel – Movie Review

Posted: April 1, 2014 in Entertainment, Movies, Reviews

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a grand caricature of a movie.  It is entertaining.  It is funny in everything from a subtle to  a slapstick sort of way.  It has beautiful cinematography, like a gourmet meal.  And it has a cast that does a remarkable job.  The list of stars in the movie include Bill Murray, Ed Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jeff Goldblum and many others, although a lot of them are smaller parts.

Wes Anderson always has a way of sculpting a movie rather than filming it, and in this case it is obviously deliberately crafted and formed to match his wonderful vision.  That of a concierge and a lobby boy, and their adventures in a famous, lavish, European hotel, involving the theft of a priceless piece of art, a jail break and the romance of many elderly ladies.

I would give this movie a solid A.
