Rudeness is merely an expression of fear. People fear they won't get what they want. The most dreadful and unattractive person only needs to be loved, and they will open up like a flower.

The Hotel Grand Budapest (2014)

Exquisitely crafted, it seems in no hurry to be wanting to convert non Anderson fans but that confidence and singularity should make it attractive none-the-less.
Much as with his earlier films, it mixes great tragedy and comedy with near reckless abandon giving real pathos to ridiculousness, weight to fluff, and always very, very funny.
The cast is superb with a never better Ralph Fiennes, flexing comedic muscles rarely given exercise and the young Tony Revolori holds his own against formidable talent.
As ever the eye to detail, sheer visual panache and structural inventiveness make it like nothing else anybody is putting out, cinema is far the richer for having such glorious bounties and oddities found within it.
