I feel Mr. Anderson would have been proud of how I came across this book and had fun representing that in his very over the top style as a side story in a major movie in the future.
I can't recommend this enough. If you enjoy the whimsical worlds that Anderson creates, this book is more of the same. Wonderful.
Anderson doesn't release many films....this book shows you why. The level of craftsmanship and detail put into each production can only be accomplished with many months of time and effort. The settings, atmosphere, camera angles, lighting, and overall ambiance are just as important as the screenplay and the casting. This book meticulously plots the steps involved in each production. My only regret is that the book was released before The Grand Budapest Hotel; that would have made for an interesting chapter. Still, this book will make a much-perused volume in the library of any Anderson aficionado or film buff.
I am very happy with the quality of the binding and heft of the cover, and am confident that my copy will stand up to lots of use. The pictures are wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading more about Wes' vision for some of my favorite films. The production stills for Fantastic Mr. Fox are particularly stunning, but the on-set photos from The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic really give you a sense of the camaraderie between the actors.
If you or someone you know are a Wes Anderson fan, this should be on the top of your list for the next gift-giving occasion.
If you have anyone in your life like this, the book will make an excellent gift. While I like Wes Anderson, I can't claim that I would scream like a 12 year old at a Justin Bieber concert were I given this gift. I only have the memories of my 55 year-old father performing that same maneuver when presented with this masterpiece.
