This quirky comedy from director Wes Anderson was released worldwide on March 7, 2014...
and -- wait... a Best Picture nominee that was released in the spring!? And with a year-high
total of nine nominations... is such a thing even possible? The $30 million dollar picture
also did very well financially, taking home $175 million in ticket sales - making it Anderson's
most successful picture yet. The 100-minute story follows the misadventures of a legendary
concierge at a prestigious hotel, alongside his trusted lobby boy. The R-rated plot has
dozens of twists, turns, and surprises, involving murder, conspiracy, prison breaks, art theft,
and surviving both world wars. Ralph Fiennes leads the massive and hugely talented supporting
cast which includes... deep breath... F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Bob Balaban, Adrien
Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton,
Jason Schwartzman, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Owen Wilson and Tony Revolori.
They're all fantastic, but it's Fiennes who turns in the most surprising performance:
exhibiting comedic timing and playfulness we've never before. Hard to believe this is
the same guy who played a hard-ass Nazi in "Schindler's List" twenty years ago. Anderson's
direction is, as always, vibrant and unique - adopting different aspect ratios to delineate
three parallel narratives. He also makes ample use of locked down wide shots that make quick
90-degree pans around the decorative and colorful sets. The quick-witted dialogue is peppered
with vulgar language, and lots of deadpan punch lines. Making great use of the titular
hotel's large ornate lobby, a scene where Fiennes suddenly decides to flee from inquisitive
police is followed by a brilliant beat before the pursuit begins. The entire script is littered
with these fun little moments, with the picture bookended by Wilkinson providing some introductory
narration remarking, "The incidents that follow were described to me exactly as I present
them here, and in a wholly unexpected way." The light and whimsical score from Alexandre
Desplat is a perfect fit for the zany, somewhat unbelievable events that unfold onscreen - even
incorporating the rare balalaika instrument during a tense ski slope sequence. I often
use the word "formulaic" as a criticism of modern cinema, but perhaps the highest compliment
I give this picture is how truly original and unformulaic everything feels. Repeat viewings
are almost required to catch all of the many intricacies and cross-references in a story
that flies by too fast to really soak it all in. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is a goofy
time with layers of personality. Here's what you had to say about it.
Awarding this the top score, you especially loved the writing and ensemble cast. There
was a certain intangible depth missing from this picture that's making me hold back, so
I'll give this a NINE out of ten.
