The Grand Budapest Hotel

Rated R.

For once, I'll allow Anderson his fripperies. With Gustave, he's made us sympathizers in his own fight for beautiful trifles, as though he sees his films as the front line in the battle against crass, cash-in blockbusters. Like his doomed dandy, Anderson wants to resurrect the high-toned Hollywood filmmaking that perhaps never even existed. As Moustafa smiles, thinking of Gustave, at worst, people can say that these two nostalgists "sustained the illusion with a marvelous grace."
