It is truly a joy to witness the work of Wes Anderson, who devotes such attention to his creative vision that he crafts his own singular world. This time, Anderson tells a tale of an Eastern European hotel manager (Ralph Fiennes) who is willed a priceless painting by a former lover (Tilda Swinton). This angers a relative (Adrien Brody), who feels he should be the true heir. For some of his new tricks, Anderson adds suspense worthy of Hitchcock or Carol Reed to his impeccably designed “dollhouse” aesthetic. Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Jude Law, and Harvey Keitel co-star in this caper, which plays out like a youth novel or a board game. Rated R. 100 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe.
