So I was looking through the ‘Movie’ topic posts and thought it might be a good idea to start a recommendation thread - a place for us to recommend movies, old or new, to each other. With a recommendation, you’d need to post a brief synopsis and description of the movie and why you think others should watch it - aim for a short paragraph. I’ll start us off:
The Grand Budapest Hotel [Wes Anderson 2014]:
Set in the 1960s - 1970s in a fictional European alpine state called Zubrowka, this adventure/comedy follows the story of ‘Gustave H’ an employee of the Grand Budapest Hotel, and the hotel’s Lobby Boy ‘Zero’. The two form an unlikely friendship as the narrative unfolds in a quirky and entertaining manner as they escape death, steal paintings, break out of prison and more. Anderson’s unique style is something to truly admire; the colour, writing, camera movements and soundtrack are all amazing and contribute greatly to the overall experience.
This became one of my favourite films of 2014 the moment I watched it - it’s definitely a unique and entertaining experience which I’d recommend to anyone looking for an interesting film to watch. It’s a treat to watch!
I’m going to aim to do at least 1 recommendation a week, looking forward to it!
