The Grand Budapest Hotel - Go See.
I saw it last night, and was completely blown away. I've never really 'got' Wes Anderson before, but now I'm a total convert. He's up there with Woody Allen. Innovative, witty, with an exquisite eye for detail. The film was very fast moving, enormously funny and entertaining and visually quite astonishing. The baddies were really bad and the goodies were mythical and magical, straight out of a Grimm's fairy tale or perhaps a magic lantern show. No sooner had I watched it then I wanted to watch it again. And I shall.
