Magic In The Moonlight
“Cloquet hated reality but realized it was still the only place to get a good steak,” Woody Allen once wrote in the 1977 short story "The Condemned"—as good as any an example of a raison d’etre for the glib, witty and yet philosophical filmmaker. But also a good exemplar of his outlook on life; bleak and yet slightly hopeful (and always with a dash of wit). Allen’s preoccupation with death and his own mortality is well-documented in his films and prose. And part of that obsession may have been escaping the harshness of reality. But behind all the existential dread that troubled characters like Alvy Singer or Isaac from “Manhattan” really lay the question: is that all there is, this misery of life? Or could there be something more?

PRADA presents "CASTELLO CAVALCANTI" by Wes Anderson
So, here's the deal on Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel": in theory, it could've been released this year and there was even some rumblings of an appearance at New York Film Festival last month, before it was ultimately decided to wait until 2014. So, what to do until then? Well, you could dive into our feature Trailer Deconstruction: Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ or you could enjoy something else brand new from the director, which finds him once again working with a longtime pal and associate.
