Grand Budapest Hotel, 2014
Updated: Oct 3, 2021
Watching this movie is like watching a beautiful painting frame by frame. For me, I cannot think of any movie well designed as such. Every detail and dialogue come together to this grand production which evokes such deep feelings of royalty, love. There is so much to take from this film that when I came across the storyboard animatic, narrated by Anderson himself, it was such a revelation into his creative development. Anderson's stop motion animations seem like a live action movies and his live action movies seem like animations to me, they cross over and blur the lines between the mediums and take me to places of cinematic euphorias.
