Over the years, director Wes Anderson has developed a visual language so unique that apparently half Hollywood is swooning over it. Just look at the list of top actors and actresses he was able to entice to star in his new film: Timothy Chalamet, Adrien Brody, Christopher Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Bill Murray, Jeffrey Wright, Elisabeth Moss, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro … (and then I forget a few more.)
Some of them you barely get to see for a minute. How does Anderson get it done from them? You can see the answer in his new film, about the editors of an American magazine (“The French Dispatch”), who come together after the death of their boss to make one last issue. That results in five crazy stories, visually packaged as only Anderson can. To snack on.
