Wes Anderson

Oh, Wes Anderson. Some have already gotten to see his latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, and even more will see it as it opens wider this weekend. Without seeing his name on the title cards, it’s easy to spot as one of his projects. The auteur has developed a look and feel all his own – usually constructed by primary colors, detailed set design, Britpop, and Bill Murray. This Texan who often lives in France is idiosyncratic in his storytelling, but he’s also unafraid to put his personal demons onto the screen (in as twee a way as possible). From Bottle Rocket to Rushmore to Fantastic Mr. Fox, his work is usually ridiculously rich and infinitely quotable. So here is a bit of free film school (for fans and filmmakers alike) from the son of an advertiser and an archeologist.


Even with a high tolerance level for quirk, twee-ness, and indie fare about young people in love, this trailer is far too much to stomach before lunch. Waiting For Forever stars Rachel Bilson and Tom Sturridge as childhood friends who hasn’t seen each other in years, except Sturridge’s character (who dresses like that guy at every local show you want to punch/ a poor man’s Benny of Benny and Joon) has apparently been stalking her and saying a lot of creepy things about “breathing her in.” It all sounds like Red Dragon more than, well hell, Benny and Joon. Check out the pajama pants wearing creepster for yourself, and enjoy the seizure:


“Northern Exposure” is surely one of the finest series ever to have been produced on network television, home of media mediocrity.
