Also, It’s a really nice contrast to the “everything’s in the computer” approach that Star Wars generally takes.
The Grand Budapest Hotel, the new Wes Anderson movie, is presented in not one but three aspect ratios. That term, aspect ratio, refers to the proportion of a movie’s width to its height. […] one of the most common formats for major theatrical releases in the U.S. is 1.85:1, with the projected image almost twice as wide as it is tall. Anderson uses that familiar format only briefly in Grand Budapest, though, for scenes at the beginning and end of the movie.
The majority of the film is presented in the so-called Academy ratio, 1.375:1. The name derives from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which set that ratio as the standard for studio films in 1932. And a few sequences of The Grand Budapest Hotel are presented in an anamorphic widescreen ratio, 2.35:1.
Each of the three ratios is used to reflect cinematic history during the respective period that it depicts.

A few weeks back, we were taking a walk in Tiergarten, when we noticed the sun was setting. Armed with our cameras, we decided to take run for the Siegesäule. We were a bit late, but still managed to shoot a couple of nice shots of the traffic and the view on Berlin.
