6. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Much like The Life Aquatic, this nutty but thin comedy about a supercilious hotel concierge (Ralph Fiennes) who steals a precious painting claimed by a thuggish Nazi-like character (Adrien Brody) with a lethal henchman (Willem Dafoe)  takes great pleasure in its sets, costumes and deadpan acting. All that comes at the expense of the haphazard storytelling.
