I love Anderson movies but they just aren't as good as the early ones. Still gorgeous to watch though!

Undeniably his most ambitious film to date in terms of shifting aspect ratio, multiple storylines and some of the best character work done in any of his films.

The cast is phenomenal and the cinematography is great. However, the plot is subpar and forced to say the least. It feels like they wrote the script as they were filming trying to connect the individual scenes together. That being said it is a very funny dark humor comedy. There are some seriously hilarious scenes, and the solid onscreen chemistry between Revolori and Fiennes brings the movie together.

Wes Anderson's carefully curated colour palettes are such a joy in this film. Paired with the quick-witted dialogue and fast-pacing, it really is a spectacle. Thoroughly enjoyable and silly.

I couldn't really stay too focused on the plot, I found it overconfising and a bit boring but it's still a very beautiful movie - 7/10
Rewatch: I rewatched this today and it was much better the second time for me. I stayed completely focused on the plot and I did force it either. Its been a good 2 years since I watched it for the first time and it's definatley better 2 years later on the second time. If you didnt like this, I suggest you give it another go. There's a lot if characters to keep track of so I recommend you have the dvd/blu Ray box Handyy so you can see the names of all the characters and their faces as you watch the film if you get lost. That's what I did. Personally, I like whiter movies unless they're really good. This is fast paced and also well paced. The story isn't forced on at any moment and it feels like it moves along nicely. Perfect length for the pacing and deep plot of the film. Like I said, watch this twice and really delve deep and get involved in the plot. It will lead to a much more rewarding result which will leave you happier afterwards. - 9/10

Wes Anderson at his best. Such a beautiful direction, background, music and most importantly a twisted storyline. Deserved all the awards it won

Super cool movie. I found the visuals particularly creative - with a pastel Art Deco vibes. Story is fast paced with a great plot line
A film to enjoy and learn from. Amazing way of presenting film history through a well plotted script. Visually satisfying.
Brilliant movie. Can’t go wrong with Wes Anderson
Amazing cinematography & cast. Would definitely recommend
