The Grand Budapest Hotel is writer-director Wes Anderson’s first full-on action picture, replete with gunfights, great escapes and cliffhangers. The true star of movie is its director, who uses every conceivable filmmaking trick to make you feel like you’re turning the pages of the greatest pop-up book ever written. The Grand Budapest Hotel dares to confront troubling patches of European history head-on but with a lightness of touch and a frivolous energy so intoxicating, that the ugly reality lurking at the edges of the screen never spoils the considerable fun. The movie is a flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes.” Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald.
