The Filmlings – The Whimsy and Woe of Wes AndersonPosted: March 7, 2017
Wes Anderson takes a perfectly framed center-stage this week as Alex and Jonathan talk Rushmore (1998), The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), and Moonrise Kingdom (2012). We discuss self-aware storytelling, how style can divert criticism, and the recycling of iconic art.
