Rebooking at THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

[1]

DB here:

I didn’t plan it, but this has been the year of Wes Anderson on our blog.

After an entry on The Grand Budapest Hotel [2]and its play with aspect ratios, I posted an analysis of Moonrise Kingdom [3](my favorite Anderson movie). Now comes a book from the indefatigable Matt Zoller Seitz [4] that continues the work of his splendiferous Wes Anderson Collection [5].

Matt provides critical commentary, natch, along with many interviews with Anderson and his creative team. Some critics have a look-in as well. I add my $.02.

You can read moreĀ on Vulture here [6]. Available from Abrams on 10 February–too late for the December holidays, but well ahead of Valentine’s Day.
