i’ve showcased kees van dijkhuizen’s [the film's of] series on the blog several times before with baz luhrmann, sofia coppola, and michel gondry. with this week’s addition of wes anderson, all he needs to do is woody allen and john hughes and my soul may be at rest.
there’s something about anderson’s work and i’m not sure how to pinpoint it. everything seems more quiet, more simple, more yellow, haha. it’s just a different way to look at situations. it took me several years to really become an anderson fanatic but i’m at the fanpoint where i really appreciate his viewpoints with the long dolly shots, or the crafty portrayal of a scene with strong, main quirky characters.
wes anderson once passed me on the street in new york and without thought or feeling i just started following him for several blocks. there we were, on the street corner. i smiled at him quietly because i felt like i knew his of secret of being someone important and also in a way brilliant. okay, so it was a little creepy of me, but i didn’t approach him. just quietly walked with him for several blocks. *sigh*
i’m greatly anticipating this month’s release of moonrise kingdom. aren’t you?!?!?! oh man. such a genius!!
