Grand Budapest Hotel sweeps BAFTA noms with 11? For serious? Five reasons why that is a travesty

Really?

1. It’s by Wes Anderson, one of the worst, most irritating and most pretentious directors operating today. Royal Tenenbaums? No, thanks. The Life Aquatic? We’d rather not, if you don’t mind.*

2. It’s one of those films where they get a million people to be in it. Even Tilda Swinton! Which is fun in a ‘Oh, isn’t that Su Pollard as the chambermaid?’ kind of way. But, no.

3. Far too much running around.

4. That idea of irony where everything is just really overblown and cartoony. Subtlety people, subtlety.

5. It’s all story and none of it matters.

*We have not seen The Grand Budapest Hotel, by the way. Because it’s directed by Wes Anderson.

  1. All points are correct. If I were Prime Minister (and thank heavens I’m not because I’ve been the length and breadth of Downing Street and never spied a decent wool shop) I would imprison Wes Anderson and ban his films of quirk and artsy fartsy before you could say Lemony Snicket (which incidentally was a film Wes A. stole all his ‘inspiration’from) Yes, Budapest Hotel was self-harmingly irritating, but just the kind of bilge like that silent film with the fucking Jack Russel that BAFTA laps up like pre-cum off a 19 year old’s tadger. Grand it was not!
