Steve Ramsden noticed acted upon a hunch that a lot of us had thought: Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" have some similar vibes to them. Of course, Anderson and Kubrick are both extremely detailed orientated with their sets and shots, and Anderson is definitely influenced by Kubrick, but Mr Ramsden has made a parody trailer of what could be Wes Anderson's "The Shining."

Two-thirds of our office has seen "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and we all agree it was one of Wes Anderson's strongest stories to date, right up there with "The Royal Tenenbaums" in terms of originality and overall filmmaking. (We like every film, "Darjeeling Limited" has a special place in our hearts as well). Somebody very clever, kogonada, who also created the awesome Kubrick "One-shot perspective" cut, has taken all the Wes Anderson films and shown the filmmakers knack for being "Centered."

It has been very much a Wes Anderson last couple of months with the release of several video essays on each of his films, a fantastic book "The Wes Anderson Collection," and of course the trailer for the much anticipated The Grand Budapest Hotel. Feeding the anticipation, this video gives us a look at the cast of characters from the upcoming film, which recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

Juxtapoz' 20th year begins with a special issue curated by Alex Pardee. "The Imagination Issue" is just that: a look into the special worlds and imaginative universes created by some of our favorite artists and creatives working in the world today. From David Copperfield's world of magic, the Lonely Island's original brand of parody and music, inside Wolvesmouth's kitchen, and into the studios of fine artists Charlie Immer, Tara McPherson, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Scott C, and more. "The Imagination Issue" explores where creativity can take you, where it was born, and how an artist can transform the regular into a special world for us to share.

Wes Anderson has been on the site a lot in the past week, most recently with the release of a trailer for the now much anticipated "The Grand Budapest Hotel" but also for The Wes Anderson Collection, a book by Matt Zoller Seitz. It seems as though he is also releasing a video essay series on each of Anderson's films starting with Bottle Rocket. So here is some weekend watching for you that could be nicely complimented with the films themselves...
