My Favorite Wes Anderson
on August 22, 2015
My favorite Wes Anderson movie. Thoughtful, exciting and clever.
It has a whimsical style that is amusing which contrasts the issues a man or woman face when they realize that perhaps life is passing them by. That their best years are behind them and many of their dreams didn't and likely aren't going to be fulfilled.
The music is exceptional. I never imagined Bowie on Portuguese would be a good fit in a movie, but it's perfect here.
The underwater scenes are unique. Colorful, beautiful, surreal!
The cast, like in all of Anderson's movies, is odd yet fits the oddity of script perfectly.
It will be more enjoyable for the older crowd as it deals with themes more relatable to those in middle age.
After watching it, whether you like it or not, you will find it unique!
