Podcast: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Top 3 Movie Mentors, Bottle Rocket – Episode 57

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Vern from Vern’s Videovanguard joins us as well as our good ole friend, Jonathan Berry, as we dive into Wes Anderson’s latest fun frenzy, The Grand Budapest Hotel, starring Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori. Going off of that, we discuss our Top 3 Movie Mentor Characters and we continue our Wes Anderson Movie Series with our review of Bottle Rocket, starring Luke and Owen Wilson. And as always, we discuss the films we got to see over the last week, including a really fun discussion on Divergent.

This was Vern’s first time on the InSession Film Podcast and he did a fantastic job, bringing some great insight into The Grand Budapest Hotel and Wes Anderson in general. Definitely be sure to go and check out his website. This was Jon’s third time on the podcast and it’s always a pleasure having him on, especially since he’s such a huge Wes Anderson fan. Both guests were very good and this week’s show was very fun, especially for those Anderson fans out there.

Anyway, we hope you have fun listening to this week’s podcast. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!

Top 3 Movie Mentor Character (37:54)
Having a mentor in your life to help guide you or train you is one of the smartest things you can do and in film we’ve seen many over the years. Some mentors have been wise older men, others have been wizards and some have been little green aliens that talk backwards. Mentors are important for helping our heroes learn that you won’t always win and you have to fight through adversity to get to the other site.

That being said, which movie mentors would be your Top 3?
