Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "Familiar Anderson trademarks say hello...but it’s the unexpected moments that make the director impossible to imitate..." - 02/14/2014 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "Fiennes summons up the humanity to bring an unexpected air of melancholy to the screen....This may well be among Anderson's better films...." - 02/28/2014 Empire


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's a filigreed toy box of a movie, so delicious-looking you may want to lick the screen. It is also, in the Anderson manner, shot through with humor, heartbreak and a bruised romantic's view of the past." - 03/06/2014 Rolling Stone


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A haunting and humane tale peopled with unforgettable characters, it's the work of a highly original filmmaker at the top of his game." - 03/07/2014 USA Today


"Hardly a moment goes by in Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL when there isn't something to make us smile -- a pretty image, a funny line, a droll sight gag, a charming set, a striking juxtaposition of color or tone." - 03/06/2014 Wall Street Journal


"Anderson is every bit as obsessed with visual composition as before, meaning every frame, virtually, is a treat for the eyes. The actors’ performances are typically offbeat and affectless, as well." - 03/13/2014 Chicago Sun-Times


"[A] magnificently cockeyed entertainment....Delighting in all manner of old movie tropes, from elaborate chases to hairs-breadth escapes to Victorian plot devices..." - 03/06/2014 Los Angeles Times


"THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is a marvelous contraption, a wheels-within-wheels thriller that's pure oxygenated movie play." -- Grade: A- - 03/14/2014 Entertainment Weekly


"[A] Wes Anderson movie, and hooray for that. At the moment, there are very few American filmmakers with the ability to articulate such an original, idiosyncratic vision and the means to express that vision so freely." - 03/06/2014 New York Times


"His visual imagination in overdrive, Anderson stages several inspired chase sequences, a daring prison break, a suspenseful pursuit through an empty museum -- all accompanied by the thrum and jangle of Alexandre Desplat’s lively score." -- Grade: B+ - 03/06/2014 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "A compulsively arranged sacher torte of a movie, an elegant mousetrap of stories-within-stories that invokes history with a temperament ranging from winsome to deeply mournful." - 03/14/2014 Washington Post
