Wear A Moustache And Stand In A Hole: Thoughts On “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

More than most things, I want for Wes Anderson to stop.

I’ve noticed that James McAvoy treats women like pigs in a lot of films. [Ed note: Which explains why he keeps writing “Some Pig” in a spider web above many actresses’ heads in his movies.]

The most literal example I can think of is Penelope, starring Christina Ricci as a girl cursed with a pig nose and McAvoy, a vagrant who doesn’t kiss Ricci until the curse is broken. Ricci dates him anyway, and the movie ends with them swinging on a hill while Sigur Rós’ “Hoppípolla” plays in the background. Little do they know that the last line translates to “I get a nosebleed, but I’ll always stand up again.” To me, this insinuates that McAvoy falls off the swing and busts his nose, leaving both characters with new snouts. [Ed note: Aren’t most Sigur Rós songs about getting new snouts?]
