Castello Cavalcanti

Why Watch? Dismissing the Prada connection (and the ramifications therein), this is another flashy stylesplosion from Wes Anderson starring (who else?) Jason Schwartzman and the color yellow.

Unsurprisingly, the Amacord-inspired short didn’t have money in the budget for a plot, although it earns some heartwarming fuel by cribbing from the Cars storyline, and seeing Anderson blend Fellini’s idiosyncratic sentimentality with Pixar’s least-liked series is worth the price of admission. Plus, the colors! The richness! Visually sumptuous and exact as usual, but let’s not pretend you read this after seeing Anderson’s name. You were either in or out in that instance. As for me, I’m in.

What Will It Cost? About 8 minutes.
