Is strange I’m gonna see it again and if you ask me to describe scenes in detail I can’t. I just know I felt good watching it from beginning to end. If you like Wes then watch it. You’ll like it

French Dispatch was just okay! Not his best (Wes Anderson), but I really enjoyed Grand Budapest. Worth a watch if you’re committed.

Wes Anderson at his most…him. Great selection of stories that work together for a visually exciting experience.

Absolutely sucked compared to any of Wes Andersons other movies. All of his other movies are amazing but I found this one to be boring and outright dumb.

So what does the film, playing in theaters, want to make millions of moviegoers feel? Delight in graphic design? Sure, but the filmmaker’s familiar motifs, playful and inventive as they may be, operate in an emotional void.

Anderson’s backdrop, a kind of steroidally enhanced Frenchness reminiscent of films such as Belleville Rendez-Vous and Amélie, is rather lovely, if ultimately as far removed from reality as is the film’s romanticised view of journalism.

The endlessly inventive Wes Anderson and a cast of all-stars use all the tools of cinema to give a big, fat, loving smooch to, of all things, print journalism and the gifted eccentrics who practice it. Too fussy? Maybe. But what an exuberant gift of a memory piece.
