There's a slightly darker edge to The Grand Budapest Hotel than Anderson's previous efforts.

In The Grand Budapest Hotel we can sense both a progression and summarizing of the entire Wes Anderson canon.

Just plain fun, full of the filmmaker's signature flourishes and curlicues, worked out with skill and finesse.

Wes Anderson makes great kid movies. He had me at 'Moonrise Kingdom' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox.' Grown-up movie-wise, Wes's weird world makes this reviewer weary.

Whimsical, frothy fun doesn't go down any easier than this, let alone with a performance as marvelous as Fiennes'.

I can't claim Anderson doesn't have a certain power as a filmmaker. But after watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, it seems clear he doesn't use his power for good.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is not a callous work, but it's about packing painful experience in storage.

Wes Anderson's superb eye for visual storytelling comes to a head with this luscious murder mystery that starts out in an exclusive luxury hotel and thrills the audience throughout Europe.

A grownup storybook of a movie spun out of candy-colored nonsense that challenges you to embrace its falseness and deny its romance.

Even a squirrelly director finds a nut once in a while.

Ralph Fiennes holds civilization together with little more than his impeccable manners and mustache in Wes Anderson's absurdist dollhouse of a tragicomedy.

Many Wes Anderson films have been intricately laced together, the ingredients blending just so. But nothing matches this perfectly layered concoction, wrapped up in an impeccable confectioner's bow.

In theory, we all should know that stepping into a theater automatically makes what we are about to see a story within a story - but director Wes Anderson delights in showing us the artifice

Wes Anderson has outdone himself, proving to be the reigning Mother of Invention.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is not his grandest work yet, but it is one worth an extended stay.

With apologies to Willy Wonka and his wallpaper-licking visitors, the titular Alpine resort is the most edible-looking lodge in cinema: a multitiered, pink-frosted castle designed to endure as an ambrosial memory.

Those like myself who admire auteur-driven filmmaking can celebrate with the release of "The Grand Budapest Hotel," the best movie of 2014 at this early stage, and perhaps likely to remain so for some time to come.

Once again, Anderson has managed to make an affecting, funny movie; it may be more melancholy than most, but bittersweet love is love nonetheless, and The Grand Budapest Hotel is worth visiting multiple times.

Anderson's admirers will love it, while those who resist his quirky mix of deadpan precision and manic disorder must grant that it fits the story he tells here.
