Wes Anderson is back with another winning comedy, this one, The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), is set in the imaginary eastern European country Zubrowka. I have revisited a couple of older Anderson releases after getting the Criterion Fantastic Mr. Fox edition and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. While the former is one of my favorite Anderson films, I realize I had given the later the short shift by dismissing it as overly sentimental and quirky, perhaps, it came out too closely on the heels to The Royal Tennebaums, another Anderson favorite. But on second viewing I had a much greater appreciation for the world he created for that film. Thus, I felt I would like to see the next Anderson world on the big screen, so this is the first film I have sen in the theater this year.The world created in this film is based on the melancholy works of its acknowledged inspiration, the late Austrian writer Stefan Zweig. It has lots of great effects and performances starting with the two leads Ralph Finnes as the beloved concierge, M. Gustave and Tony Revolori as the young Zero Mostel (played as an older man by F. Murray Abraham). The effects and cinematography are half the fun, and there are a fully array of great cameos by the likes of William DaFoe, Jude Law, Tom Wilkerson, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson among many more. It's another entertaining voyage into the imagination of Anderson.
