Consensus: Typically stylish but deceptively thoughtful, The Grand Budapest Hotel finds Wes Anderson once again using ornate visual environments to explore deeply emotional ideas.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

The movie is a flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes. Also, be ready to crave some macaroons.

In its own silly, artificial way, it's the first Anderson film to acknowledge the existence of a world outside its own little toy box and to ground its characters' nostalgia in something resembling actual historical reality.

A joy and sight to behold from beginning to end, The Grand Budapest Hotel is pure filmmaking delight. It's one of 2014's best.

"Budapest" is pretty much an old-fashioned screwball comedy garishly dressed. It's goofy, eccentric and often downright silly. There are many scenes that would have worked in a "Three Stooges" movie.

The comedy in The Grand Budapest Hotel is among the broadest yet undertaken by Anderson. But amid the frenzied hubbub, there are intimations of a darker, sadder history unfolding.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is funny and offbeat, zips along at a pleasing pace, and in M. Gustave has a truly memorable leading character.

After feeding on this sweet buffet, sated cinephiles will want to call the front desk to extend their stay.

If a movie can be elegantly zany, this wholly imaginative, assured fable of a legendary concierge Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), his protégé Zero (Tony Revolori) and the murder of a countess, is it.

What is remarkable is that instead of overcooking this film, the big names add value to a remarkably inventive and wholeheartedly fun, cinema-going experience.

Definitely in my top ten.

Rambunctious and charming. An epic feast for the senses with a tender and humane core. Ralph Fiennes is simply brilliant.
