The making of Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel(2014)
It was SENSATIONAL! MESMERIZING! GOOOORGEOUS! A MUST SEE! I loved all the “winks” to other works of art and famous hotel movies, if I guessed correctly (if you know what I mean ;) ). I think all the actors did a great job, even when most of them were on screen for no more than 10 minutes! I mean, I don’t know much about acting, but I would know if it was shitty, I think! :P But I wasn’t really focused on acting, as much as I was on the cinematography and photography, which were phenomenal, as always! After all, that was the reason I fell in love with Anderson’s work in the first place!
I knooow, I knoooow, my opinion is anything but impartial, I could watch ANYTHING from Wes Anderson, but it truly was a whole experience! After the movie ended I felt such a strong need to remain seated and take some time to let everything I saw soak in (AND enjoy the fabulous end-credits music!). Unfortunately we rushed out of the cinema, but this warm feeling stayed with me for quite some time! Even now!… =) =) =)
P.S: I also saw “Bottle Rocket” earlier today and with that, I completed the Wes Anderson filmography! YAAAAAAAAAAAYY!

You watch the world bang door after door in your face, numbly, bitterly. You have forgotten the secret you knew, once, ah, once, of being joyous, of laughing, of opening doors.
