"The biggest thing that’s in a movie is the main thing is these faces and these voices, these people who are playing the scenes and as prepared as I may have a scene be, I feel like on a set it’s always just chaos and the actors take over and they have to bring it to life and you know it just goes to them."
- Wes Anderson speaking about his new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, last week at LIVE from the NYPL. The film hits theaters today.
