The Grand Budapest Hotel by jaemskeray

Set in a fantastical and dark pre WW2 Europe, this farcical murder mystery is about a hotel concierge, played by Ralph Fiennes, who is accused of murdering his anciently old lover.  The story is told from the perspective of the hotel’s lobby boy, whom Ralph takes a shinning to, and who is along for the whole crazy ride.  It was a bit of a slow burn at the beginning setting everything up, but once it got going, oh man was it amazing.  Visually, its the most beautiful movie I have ever seen, watch the video below to see how they made some of the shots.  Anderson’s best movie so far.  Required Viewing.


To Live and Die in L.A. by tincolor

William Friedkin directs William Petersen and Willem Dafoe in a film about crime in the 80s. John Turturro and Dean Stockwell also show up along the way. The film is definitely engaging, but unfortunately, it’s hard to like any of the characters. The criminals are coldhearted killers and the cops aren’t much better. An averagely paced film with a lot of style and a lot of attitude, but not nearly as much substance as it presumes to have. A high Watchable.
