"While Grand Budapest is one of Anderson's better movies, it is not as heartwarming and soul-enriching as Life Aquatic. There is something more genuine about the characters in that film. Budapest is funny, and the characters are endearing, but they don't feel real. More like quirky constructs. I think that's how I would divide Anderson's films: Genuinely Quirky vs. Contrived Quirky (Darjeeling being the worst offender)."
