New Wes Anderson

I like most of Wes Anderson’s films. They are quirky for sure, and not for everyone. I like his color palette, and symmetry. The script is usually pretty odd, but sometimes funny. This new one has another ensemble cast, but based on this trailer, I think it might be a miss. That being said, I don’t think any of his trailers make the films look great…

Any of you bastards fans of Wes Anderson?

  1. I was struck by the odd cinematography of the trailer, and then this popped up under the movie title …

    Knowing Anderson, this is all Sixties technology. And yes, I’ll likely see this in the theater! I’m a fan but haven’t made it all the way through his last one.

  2. I tell myself I’m a huge fan but it’s based entirely on Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, and Darjeeling Limited.

    I meant to see but somehow entirely missed Moonrise Kingdom, Grand Budapest Hotel, and The French Dispatch.

    That’s one talent-laden cast.

  3. I’m generally a fan. I’ve liked everything except The French Dispatch, which I enjoyed in places but overall left me cold. Maybe it was just my mood, I might give it another shot. Visually I love them all. That’s one good thing about WA movies: if the action or script gets too self-consciously quirky, you can always just enjoy the beauty.

  4. Nice catch on the equipment, Makerbot. I’m not familiar with that one specifically, but most vintage cameras give you such a beautiful look.
    He has a lot of the usual suspects in this one, but I wonder how Tom Hanks ended up in the cast. He doesn’t seem like someone WA would typically cast. Maybe Hanks wanted to be in something so different from any of his other films.

  5. I loved this movie. Funny, well-constructed, and beautiful. Wes is back on track. This one’s for the theater, so see it while you can.
