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

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is not his grandest work yet, but it is one worth an extended stay.

Grand isn't good enough a word for this Budapest Hotel. Great is more like it.

This whimsical tale oozes charm while brisk editing lets you enjoy - but not be overwhelmed by - cakes like mountains and mountains like cakes, chandeliers, perfumed men and Persian pussies.

The mannered, madcap proceedings are often delightful, occasionally silly, and here and there, gruesome and/or heartbreaking.

Anderson's films are too precious for some, but for those of us willing to lose ourselves in them, they're a delight. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is no different, except that he has added a hint of gravitas to the mix, improving the recipe.

It's the most emotionally satisfying Anderson film since Rushmore, and its quirks and whimsies are kept right on the edge of indulgence without ever actually tipping over.

I like Anderson when he's making movies about childhood -- "Rushmore," or "Fantastic Mr. Fox" -- but when he ventures into the realm of adulthood, he seems out of his jurisdiction.

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.

[Wes Anderson's] nostalgia, like his set design, is so contrived that I don't believe he really believes in it as anything other than a visual style. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a perfect miniature world, but it left me cold.
