The Grand Budapest Hotel

Look, I get it.

Wes Anderson is a director you love with a burning passion, or hate with about as much ardor.

His style is not for everyone, and nothing I say is likely to change your mind if you find his way of filmmaking annoying or pretentious.

For me, this fun romp with an all-star cast careening around a resort is my second-favorite of Anderson’s films, trailing just Bottle Rocket.

Oscar voters were on a similar wavelength, handing Budapest nine noms and four wins (though, sadly, not Best Picture).

If you still hate it, maybe the problem is you…
