Grand Hotel Budapest

The Grand Budapest HotelStarringRalph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Adrien BrodyWillem DafoeHarvey KeitelJude LawBill MurrayEdward Norton

Directed byWes Anderson

Written byWes AndersonHugo Guinness

Year: 2014

Plot: Somewhere in the Alpine Republic of Zubrowka, no doubt named after the slightly psychedelic Polish vodka of the same name, there once stood The Grand Budapest Hotel, run like a well wound-up Zubrowkan clock, thanks its meticulous if eccentric concierge, Monsieur Gustave H. When he is wrongly accused of murder, a slew of colorful characters comes to his rescue, while another set of equally colorful characters plots his downfall.

Pros: Quixotic, Andersonian plot line and an exquisite ensemble cast. Might just be the best of Wes Anderson flicks to date.

Cons: If we watch it again, we will probably find some fault, but upon the first viewing, we found none.
