my highly anticipated films of 2014, Wes Anderson's latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, did not disappoint. I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into, but before going I did best to keep my expectations undefined. We had discussed it briefly in my film class and my professor described it as "candy". I would agree. Not only was the film's color palette was delectable -- and I am sure that was intentional, given the focus on the treats at Mendl's -- but the symmetrical shots were ultimately pleasing to the eye, like most other Wes Anderson films. (Don't believe me? Watch this video.)
Bottom line, if you like Wes Anderson and his quirky filmmaking style as I do, you will not regret spending the money to go see it as soon as possible. Here, I will definitely say that watching it in the theater on the big screen was a delightful experience and I highly recommend it.
