  MOVIE POSTERTHE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, 2014
Movie Reviews

Director: Wes Anderson

Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton

Review by Matthew Toffolo

SYNOPSIS:

The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

REVIEW:

I always have liked Wes Anderson movies. He's really the only director in modern times where you can guess right away if you didn't already know that he directed a certain movie. All of his films are grounded in some sort of reality but we are also in a fantasy world at the same time. His worlds are so familiar but so mysterious all at once and for that you need to give him applause. He definitely has something that no other director past or present has.

The Grant Budapest Motel is like the best roller coaster ride at the amusement park. You anticipate it while you're in line and enjoy it while it's happening as it takes you on an adventure. Then when it's over and you have left the park, you kind of forget you even went on that ride. It's fun while it's happening but it doesn't leave you with anything.

There really is no grand point to this movie really. It tells an adventure story filled with comedy and then it ends. And the interesting thing about this film too is that as soon as it begins, the pace remains exactly the same. After the initial setup, we are always at the same speed like a roller coaster is and then it's all over.

I didn't hate this film at all. I actually love a lot about it. But as a whole I was left a bit empty. Perhaps that's just me but I kind of do this for a living so I'm always aware of the kind of story the filmmaker wants to tell. In Grand Budapest I'm not really sure what Wes Anderson is really trying to say. It seems that as soon as he stopped writing with Owen Wilson after co-penning Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and Royal Tenenbaums together, the heart has left his films.

All I'm asking for is a little emotion in his brilliant set design and direction. Then all of his films can stand the test of time.
