I know I am really late on watching The Grand Budapest Hotel. I finally saw it a couple weekends ago and feel completely in love. Wes Anderson is a genius with beautiful imagery, colors and overall design.
I especially loved all the graphic elements, from the packaging and fonts for the Mendel’s shop. I even loved the small details like the book carried in the opening scene.
I think one of the best parts of this film was the beautiful symmetry represented throughout the film. Although that is his signature trademark it just shinned in this film.
I love when a movie inspires me, it doesn’t happen that often but when it does it sticks with me for a while. It is a strong statement to say, but I think this was one of his best films to date, although Royal Tenenbaums is still my favorite.
