Forgive my laziness over the last couple months. I haven't been posting much at all, and I've been shooting pictures even less. I was planning on going to SF to take some pictures yesterday, but it was raining most of the day, so I ended up not going. I did however see The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was wonderful, and might be my new favorite Wes Anderson movie. Around the middle, I actually found myself wondering why people think of his movies as pretentious hipster trash. I thought about all of his other movies and I'm honestly not sure what qualifies them as pretentious. They are all comedies and feature big name actors. The dialogue is generally straight forward and the plots are the same and aren't particularly convoluted or hard to understand. There isn't any underlying message, or dark and moody tone. Honestly. I hate to fall on this (all too common) speculation, but do people think of it as pretentious hipster trash because it's a little different than everything else you see in the theatre?
