I am and always have been a cat person. So after watching this movie, I think I understand what it must be like to read Harry Potter and know you’re a Slytherin.

Feline sympathies aside, I loved this movie. Andersen creates a universe and this one—like Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom—is wonderful enough to wish it could last longer than it did.

Grand Budapest HotelThe new Wes Anderson film. I have as little to say about it as I do about most of his movies. I love the models and the establishing shots but am left bored by the origami-esque precision of the plot’s absurdities and ironies.
