In Wes Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, train travel proves to be a difficult feat for the character Zero (Tony Revolori). Despite Zero’s train travel plight, Anderson himself enjoys a good train ride (the joy of such playing a prominent role in The Darjeeling Limited) and says of this form of travel, “It’s a calm, friendly, leisurely, and extremely protracted type of experience.” He is quoted on the Amtrak blog:
One thing you almost always get on a train is time to burn… But it’s especially nice to have that time while you are on the move.
The Woody Allen debacle has many fans conflicted, but apparently not Oscar voters. Michael Musto at The Daily Beast interviewed an Oscar voter who, while not voting for Allen, was not swayed by the director’s personal life:
I didn’t vote for his screenplay, just because I liked another one better.
