It would be all too simple to reel off a list of the golden oldies, for a mere ten seconds on the internet and you'll find yourself with some website barking at you as to why you haven't seen Citizen Kane yet. Have you been living in a fucking cave? I, however, think we should be forgiven for not always wanting to watch the classics, for these all too often subscribe to some cinematic bucket list of snobbery that ever so slightly bullies you into enjoying them. Sometimes you're just not in the mood for something that won ten Oscars and details the life of a junkie mass murderer with terminal cancer. And that's fine.

Video Essay: The Visual Themes of Wes Anderson Features, Video - Way Too Indie
Interesting
Wes Anderson has become a film genre. Even Saturday Night Live did a spoof on this notion, re-envisioning a modern horror film as a Wes Anderson comedy for one of their digital shorts. And although the auteur would not likely refer to himself as a "genre", the evidence is onscreen in every one of his films. It's through the marriage of his production design team's (David Wasco, Mark Friedberg, Nelson Lowry and Adam Stockhausen) signature art direction, and the virtuoso camerawork led by his go-to Director of Photography Robert Yeoman (as well as his stop-motion animation cinematographer Tristan Oliver) that Anderson has been able to carve a niche in American cinema history. In the same way a Spike Lee Joint or a Martin Scorsese Picture have their own distinctions, so also is a Wes Anderson film (more properly known as an American Empirical Picture) easy to spot. But the twist is, for all his towering success as an American auteur, the look and feeling behind each Anderson film finds its influences more rooted in foreign cinema. The tracking camera, moving from room to room, examining the bourgeoisie and upper class in the films of Luis Buñuel (e.g. El Angel Exterminador) laid the groundwork for the dolly and tracking shots in Anderson's Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and early sections of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. The frenetic energy and overall zeal found in François Truffaut's Jules et Jim serves also as the celluloid backbone of most of Anderson's works, specifically Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. The melancholic swoons of the silver screen's longing romantics permeate Moonrise Kingdom, Hotel Chevalier/The Darjeeling Limited and in the romance subplot of Bottle Rocket. These films share the same sort of beautiful yet honest moments found in Jean-Luc Godard's Pierrot Le Fou.
