MOVIE REVIEW: THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL (Wes Anderson, 2014)

6EBFA466-AE35-4512-9BAE-88458D5B97FD

My kind of whimsical entertainment from the fantastic Mr. Anderson. Truly beautiful!

P.S. Full disclosure: I absolutely abhorred the cloying Moonrise Kingdom.

P.P.S. Tilda Swinton only showed up for 5 minutes and she was amazing as always.

Rating: ★★★★★

MOVIE REVIEW: JOJO RABBIT (Taika Waititi, 2019)

04140487-903F-4762-AA13-CD469E34356C

It’s Life is Beautiful by way of Wes Anderson.

Am I going to hell for having laughed so hard at this Holocaust comedy? Probably not, since it was obviously a satire.

The entire ensemble was fantastic (love the adorable Yorkie!), but Roman Griffin Davis was the absolute star of the show.

“Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.”

Rating: ★★★★☆
