A gorgeous, inventive, meticulously-crafted world by Anderson. The humour never misses a beat, from Fiennes' unexpectedly great performance to the visual gags scattered throughout. From typefaces to costumes, interiors, characters/cast and dialogue, Wes Anderson's unique world is fully realised. The camera movement, as always, remarkable. It's a magical place, and I daresay this is my favourite film of his. There's no doubt this will require multiple viewings (ideally, frame-by-frame) to completely grasp all the visual flair on offer.
