March 20, 2018
Wes Anderson's overly considered cinematic world has never felt so expansive, enveloping, and infectiously fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 21, 2018
The theme seems to be a kind of late-Edwardian Euro whimsy along Wodehousian lines... except that Wodehouse was really funny, and Anderson really isn't.

Whether you call this an exaggeratedly tall tale or simply a good old shaggy dog story, its ultimate meaning matters less than its maker's lavish deployment of a whimsy so powerful it could almost be thermonuclear.
January 2, 2018
Discerning travellers and Wes Anderson fans will luxuriate in the glorious Mittel-European kitsch of one of the director's funniest and most exquisitely designed movies in years.

Anderson proposes a kind of chivalric novel with nineteenth century airs from a wonderful staging... [Full review in Spanish]
November 13, 2017
This whimsical tale oozes charm while brisk editing lets you enjoy - but not be overwhelmed by - cakes like mountains and mountains like cakes, chandeliers, perfumed men and Persian pussies.

It's the most emotionally satisfying Anderson film since Rushmore, and its quirks and whimsies are kept right on the edge of indulgence without ever actually tipping over.
September 12, 2017
[Wes Anderson's] nostalgia, like his set design, is so contrived that I don't believe he really believes in it as anything other than a visual style. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a perfect miniature world, but it left me cold.
March 10, 2017
As usual, it's beautifully set-designed, impeccably scored and acted with all the emotion of Hannibal Lecter on a bender.

It's one to lose yourself in.

There's a slightly darker edge to The Grand Budapest Hotel than Anderson's previous efforts.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5
June 21, 2016
In The Grand Budapest Hotel we can sense both a progression and summarizing of the entire Wes Anderson canon.
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 18, 2016
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

For anyone who has long suspected Wes Anderson of being a master technician in search of his heart, The Grand Budapest Hotel joyfully announces that the quest is over.
Full Review | Original Score: 4 of 5
April 12, 2016
Whimsical, frothy fun doesn't go down any easier than this, let alone with a performance as marvelous as Fiennes'.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.
July 14, 2015
The Grand Budapest Hotel is not a callous work, but it's about packing painful experience in storage.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 13, 2015
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
March 11, 2015
A grownup storybook of a movie spun out of candy-colored nonsense that challenges you to embrace its falseness and deny its romance.
