Movies and Art #15

The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson 2014) and Grand Hotel Semiramis (Joseph Cornell)

No art and movie list would be complete in my opinion without the inclusion of at least one Wes Anderson movie. His particular style with pastel colors and the feel of a picture postcard is so akin to the assemblages of Joseph Cornell I am left to wonder if Wes Anderson was influenced by his work. There is even the feeling of containment in his movies, the story centering around a physical place such as an island, school or hotel.
