'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Review

Wes Anderson has finally done it. He's gone and created his own country.
Zubrowka, the fictional town at the heart of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is positioned on the farthest Eastern edge of Europe's great empire. It is a melange of stylistic flourishes and decorative signifiers from a make believe 20th Century - a memory of a memory, a fastidious, whimsical take on real horrors - a storybook samizdat that entices with madcap adventure then goes in for the kill with existential dread. It is an incredible place to visit.

In 1998, Wes Anderson released his second film, 'Rushmore,' which followed the life of eccentric teenager Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), his friendship with the wealthy and lonely Herman Blume (Bill Murray), and their fight for the affection of a beautiful elementary school teacher. Co-written by Anderson and Owen Wilson, 'Rushmore' helped further Anderson's career and put Schwartzman on the map. Now, 16 years later, we revisit the cast of this indie favorite and see what they're up to now.

Racking up a plethora of nominations and wins this awards season is the quirky, clever 'Moonrise Kingdom' screenplay. Penned by director Wes Anderson along with Roman Coppola, the script recently nabbed an Oscar nod, sadly its only nomination.
If you enjoyed Anderson and Coppola's peculiar brand of humor and whimsy as we did (you can see its prime placement on our Top 20 Movies of 2012), you'll be happy to flip through the script itself, which has just appeared online. Only this isn't just any stuffy old screenplay - this one is interactive!

Wes Anderson's 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Adds Tilda Swinton & More

by Eric Walkuski December 26, 2012 @ 11:15 AM
Wes Anderson is no slouch when it comes to building impressive ensembles, as proven in films like 'The Royal Tenenbaums', 'The Life Aquatic' and his latest, the sublime 'Moonrise Kingdom'. Obviously not ready to limit the names in his stock company, Anderson's next film, 'Grand Budapest Hotel', is assembling perhaps the director's most wonderful cast yet.
We already know that among the talents in 'Grand Budapest' are Jude Law, Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Saoirse Ronan and, of course, Jason Swartzman (whew!), but today another handful of names has emerged. Check them out after the break!

Outside of the occasional television commercial, Jeff Goldblum sightings are rare these days. It's a shame, really -- the world would be a significantly improved place if there was more Goldblum, all the time. However, there's some good news brewing on the Goldblum Front today: it looks like he's officially joined the already bursting-at-the-seams cast of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.'

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Finds a Leading Lady in Saoirse Ronan

by Nick Romano November 2, 2012 @ 1:00 PM
'The Grand Budapest Hotel' has gone through a long period of ups and downs. Johnny Depp was first thought to play the male lead in Wes Anderson's latest, but it turned out that the internet was just pulling a fast one on us. Then Ralph Fiennes stepped into talks to take over the vacant spot, but Angela Lansbury bowed out.
Let's hope this next casting news sticks -- Saoirse Ronan, star of the upcoming vampire flick 'Byzantium,' has been tapped for the lead female role in the film.
