I was not kidding on Friday when I said that Wes Anderson’s new movie deserves its own post. So here it is. I heart/love/adore/cannot get enough of the quirky brain-children that spring from Wes Anderson. Here is a preview of what is sure to be a treat. Alas, we apparently have to wait until MARCH 2014 to watch it!! Gack, that’s a long time from now. Le sigh & here’s hoping for an early bay area release.
I am especially hoping that the film was shot in Budapest. I’m loathe to say too much about that wonderful city as I fear it becoming even more discovered than it already is. Here’s a shot I took of a real life grand Budapest hotel – the Four Seasons (it’s in an old castle & is really the most marvelous setting on the planet; I also think it bears quite a resemblance to the one in the movie poster, no?).
And PS – Saturday Night Live did a hilarious spoof of Wes Anderson movies (proving the show is still funny from time to time).
