“I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do. It’s sort of like my handwriting as a movie director. And somewhere along the way, I think I’ve made the decision: I’m going to write in my own handwriting.”
Wes Anderson is one of the most distinctive directors around. Many have accused him of style over substance, and I can definitely see where they are coming from. But if you’re going to put style over substance at least have it be one as beautiful and unique as Anderson’s. His films can get on my nerves if I watch too many of them at once, but if I space them out, they’re always a welcome change from the mainstream.
