    I caught the trailer when I went to see a showing of Ferris Bueller's day off earlier tonight. Looks neat.

    They are too numerous to mention, but the early reviews have come out and they are very positive.

    fucking wonderful.
    and the complete silence of the audience at the end was delicious.
    one to own, for sure.

    oh i can't wait until you two have seen it so i can talk about it with you.
    even just to to talk about the fact that even had it no dialogue, it was worth seeing for the visuals alone.
    that man has an eye that speaks SO LOUD.
    so few film makers can create brain fodder, imo, that address all of the senses.

    Ok. I saw it and I loved it! This is on par with Life Aquatic. I thought the performances were spot on and the timing and attention to detail was impeccable.

    did you find it hard to process and then shake the ending?
    i am STILL doing that, four days later. lol.
    it reminds me (and bear with me here) of a headless chicken flapping around the hen house...the separation of body and brain take a while to line up again.
    fuck. i cannot think of a more elegant analogy right now. lol.
    headless dancing chicken, it is.

    I think it takes a certain pedigree of people to understand and appreciate Wes Anderson's films. I had an ex who didn't get Life Aquatic. He is an idiot. I'm glad I'm in such good company here.

    I'm tempted to see it again. It was that good

    I love Wes Anderson's dialogue beats and framing of shots.

    I just wish he'd have two main female characters talk about something other than men more often.

    Amazing! Simply wonderful! Wes Anderson has a total gift for immersing you into a story and a world the way a gifted storyteller or beautifully drawn book could when we were children. This is as close as I can get to describing the feeling I experience, especially from Grand Budapest Hotel and his previous Moonrise Kingdom. But I think Grand Budapest probably tops my list of Anderson's films right now. Everything and everyone in the film was top notch. I cannot think of a single criticism, really!

    Watched it today (at Fort Wayne, Indiana's Cinema Center, a nice little arthouse theater smack dab in the cultural district of what's seen as one of the Midwest's more conservative cities) and enjoyed it immensely. While there is a presence of humor throughout I can say I only truly laughed at a couple of bits, which is okay. The grand visual style presented here is taking over from the situational comedy of films like Rushmore, Tenenbaums and Life Aquatic. That's not to say I wasn't invested in the story, the characters felt as fleshed out as anyone in those movies (the first two anyway).


    Let me say I was also impressed with the music. I'd always hoped Mark would work again in the role of primary composer, but with this film Alexandre has really stepped up and manage to weave a style wholly appropriate to the Anderson aesthetic.

    Absolutely adored the movie. Although the cackling from the lady behind me was a bit distracting at times...

    I'd rank it in the top 3 of my favourite Wes movies. I'm still partial to the divisive Life Aquatic.


    Also... I don't agree with the statement that it takes a certain pedigree of person to appreciate his films. I think that statement falls right into the trap that critics of Wes's films make towards their fans (pretentious and style over substance). If someone doesn't get the film, then that is OK. To each their own, right?

    I really need to go and see this. My town's cinema is garbage and only shows the bottom of the barrell blockbuster movies, anything that resembles a plot I have to go to the next town over.

    Life Aquatic and Moonrise Kingdom are brilliant.
