I promise everyone that my next post will be a book review but for now, my thoughts about my new favorite movie!
Oh how I loved the casting and every actor is absolutely brilliant, not to mention these actors are top-notch. You’ll find no shoddy acting here. First off, Ralph Fiennes is known for dramatic acting and I didn’t even know he could be remotely good with comedic interpretation. Frankly, he knocked my socks off and he delivered some of the best one-liners! And newcomer, Tony Revolori delivered a performance of veteran caliber, everyone should see this film for his deadpan alone.
Wes Anderson has the ability to create an ornate world, weaving the past and present, blurring the lines of history and fiction that I found completely spellbinding. The wide frame shots, to the action sequences and everything in between felt like a beautiful dance, one that only Mr. Anderson can do. I have nothing but a tremendous amount of respect for him as a filmmaker, director and screenwriter.
If I were granted a wish, it would be to see Wes in action, nothing would make me happier and here’s some b-roll for your viewing pleasure!
I won’t tell you what the movie is about exactly but I will leave you with the official trailer by Fox Searchlight.
There’s a certain wistfulness to this film but it’s also incredibly funny and charming.
