Over the years, filmmakers Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson have garnered critical and commercial acclaim for their work, with each of them having their distinctive style. However, the similarities between the two mostly end there, with the two having worked in different time periods, dabbling in different genres, and possessing different strengths.
There is another notable similarity between the two as of last year, however; both filmmakers have made movies about hotels. Kubrick’s 1980 film The Shining, the adaptation of the Stephen King novel, follows the Overlook Hotel and its caretakers, the Torrance family, during its off-season of winter, when the trio are the only humans in the place. Anderson’s 2014 film The Grand Budapest Hotel, on the other hand, deals with the trials and tribulations of M. Gustave, the concierge at the titular hotel who gets embroiled in issues surrounding a family’s inheritance.
Youtube user Steve Ramsden has now brought the two together in a mashup titled “Wes Anderson’s The Shining“. The video can be seen below.
