The Grand Budapest Hotel
This post could more appropriately be titled "My introduction to Wes Anderson films." As a human being — and especially as a creative individual — I'm embarrassed to admit that is the first time I've seen his work.
Of course, the storyline was great. It was heartfelt and amusing, all around enjoyable. But the aesthetic? Unparalleled.
Every shot was perfectly framed. I would hang stills of this film on my wall. I came across a blogger who said that her favorite art director was Anderson, and now I know why. He has such style, such attention to detail. The color, composition and movement — it's just incredible.
