The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel — with its polarizing auteurism — is quintessential Wes Anderson.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach

There isn’t much middle ground when it comes to how one feels about Wes Anderson, the filmmaker behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom. His meticulous visual style and unflagging quirkiness have won both ardent fans and detractors; one viewer’s delight is another viewer’s preciousness.

StART it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

An abandoned lumber yard isn’t your typical setting for a good time. But for a month-long public arts project, it’s ideal. Norman Arts Council’s StART Norman initiative will turn the vacant yard into a lively downtown stop beginning with a re-opening celebration 6-10 p.m. Friday on the southwest corner of W. Main Street and Webster Avenue in Norman. Admission is free. Call 360-1162 or visit startnorman.com.
