12.28.15Blu-ray Got the Criterion of this for Christmas and my aunt hadn't seen it. I think I liked it more this time. I mean you can either love all the intricate details in the meticulously-constructed frames or you find it too precious and irksome. I love it. The photography is certainly stunning here though and the story is very innocent and charming. I'll probably end up owning all of Wes Anderson's stuff eventually just like the Coens.
06.15.13Internet For whatever reason Wes Anderson seems played out in my mind these days, which is weird because the last two movies I saw of his... ok really everything of his but Darjeeling and half of Steve Zissou I like a great deal. I thought Fantastic Mr. Fox was great and I liked this a great deal as well. Perhaps on par with Steve Zissou in that I probably won't feel any great need to revisit with any regularity but still I have nothing majorly bad to say about it other than Movies like Rushmore and Tannenbaums capture Anderson's obsession with centering the frame and ornate living spaces better. This is like a love story for children or something. It almost should've been animated like Mr. Fox.

This is all a jumble. I mean to say that I don't know why I'm not more excited for Wes Anderson movies because I like them, but they are more of the same if by "the same" I mean unique Wes Anderson vision.
