Johnnie Walker Blue Label has just released a short film starring Jude Law & Giancarlo Giannini. They shot it in the British Virgin Islands and London and it’s not only gorgeous it keeps with what seems to be this weekend’s theme, happy dancing.
Wes Anderson is a film maker with a distinct voice. He tells stories with emotional cores and often tells them using characters that don’t always seen to want to, or even know how to, express those emotions and sets them in a world that is just over the border into absurdity and littered with all kinds of fine detail, interesting colour palettes, and now stop motion.
Basically he crafts a whimsical world and then populates it with non-whimsical people.
In any event, The Grand Budapest Hotel may be his best film yet by virtue of the fact that it’s probably the most Wes-Anderson-y film he’s made to date, but in the best way possible.
Wes Anderson makes a certain flavour of film. I like to call it “Wes Andersony” because he’s the only guy that makes that particular flavour. _The Grand Budapest Hotel_ appears to be the most Wes Andersony film yet. Let’s watch!
