Whenever I’ve had to defend Wes Anderson to anyone – particularly those who accuse the Texas auteur of favoring style over substance – I tend to say that, in his particular case, the style is the substance. Anderson is allergic to big, phony displays of emotion, and instead prefers to distill his unique brand of sadness into minute, often fastidiously curated art objects. You can see it in “Rushmore,” when Max Fischer gives a lonely, broken Herman Blume a choice between a Punctuality pin or one for Perfect Attendance.

In the latest episode of Lessons from the Screenplay, “Moonrise Kingdom” is analyzed for the way its story matches the well-known style of director Wes Anderson. Instead of reviewing the visual aspects of his style, however, the video breaks down how the details in the screenplay create the vivid island world.
“We all know what a Wes Anderson film looks like, but what does a Wes Anderson screenplay look like?” This opening question marks the first part of the video, which notes the meticulous details in the screenplay for “Moonrise Kingdom” and how these details impact the audience’s perceptions of the world of the film. All these little details add up to make the film feel more real, which also supposes that the character’s actions have similarly real repercussions.

“Rushmore” saved Jason Schwartzman. What did you ever do? Wes Anderson somehow manages to keep improving upon himself, with “Moonrise Kingdom” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” standing as highlights of an already distinguished filmography, but 1998’s “Rushmore” will always be in the conversation for the filmmaker’s best work. His brother Eric Chase Anderson made a short documentary about

The project was born when Anderson asked his brother shoot the electronic press kit (Epk) for “Rushmore”; EPKs are usually quite brief, but Anderson had the idea to put something more substantial together by having his brother work on the project throughout the entire shoot. Eric narrates the short-form documentary, detailing how certain scenes were achieved and briefly speaking to his brother and Schwartzman, among others.

Gareth Edwards’ “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” the first standalone “Star Wars” film in the long-running franchise, recently went through extensive reshoots spearheaded by director Tony Gilroy in order to clarify story and tone. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will swap out original composer Alexandre Desplat for Michael Giacchino per those reshoots just three months ahead of the film’s release. The reshoots apparently altered the scoring calendar and Desplat was no longer available for the position, so Disney hired Giacchino to take over the role.

Desplat has been nominated for eight Oscars in total, winning one for his score for Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” He also contributed scores for two other Anderson films “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Moonrise Kingdom,” Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life, »

Hunt for the Wilderpeople, 2016.
Directed by Taika Waititi.
A national manhunt is ordered for a rebellious kid and his foster uncle who go missing in the wild New Zealand bush.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople occupies a strange place, that purgatory between a children’s fantasy and something more akin to a study of loss aimed at the slightly older. Yet Taika Waititi, director of the delightfully silly What We Do In The Shadows, never pigeonholes the film, moving with ease between broad comedy and something with genuine warmth, all be it warmth buried beneath mounds of mud.

Man, I want a Bruce Willis who gives a shit back. It's not like he can't still give a great performance (just look at the recent Moonrise Kingdom). It's just that he seems content to do basically two-day walk-ons in Rebox action movies while half-comatose. Even during action scenes he seems bored. This brings us to First Kill, which also stars Hayden Christensen. The... Read More »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.
BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »
Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Though the list itself is fascinating, what’s also compelling are the statistics about the actual list. According to the the BBC, they polled 177 film critics from every continent except Antarctica. »

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?
Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.
BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily.
What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »
Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.
The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

A nearly 600-page biography of a French filmmaker would not make every summer reading list, but any discerning cinephile will consider Éric Rohmer: A Biography. It’s one of several stunning recent releases, along with a weighty oral history of Star Trek, an intimate remembrance of Stanley Kubrick, and a fascinating breakdown of the great Suspiria. Now that’s an eclectic roster of beach reads.
Even minor Star Trek fans will be spellbound by The Fifty-Year Mission, a stunning oral history from Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman. The first in a two-volume set — Volume Two, covering the last 25 years, will be released in late-August — is impressively comprehensive, and full of unforgettable stories. These include the original series rivalry between William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, »

One of my favorite contemporary designers is Jessica Hische, a lettering artist whose best known movie poster work is her typeface design for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. Hische is a prodigiously talented and endlessly inventive artist who has brought renewed recognition to the art of lettering and whose covers for Barnes and Noble Classics and Penguin Drop Caps are gorgeous. I mention this because I recently discovered the poster work of another extraordinary letterform artist from an earlier era, via this magnificent poster for Louis Malle’s Atlantic City.Gerard Huerta is a letterform and logo designer who got his start with CBS Records in the early 70s where he created album covers and logos for Boston, Ted Nugent, Rick Derringer, Bob Dylan and many others. His greatest claim to fame might be that he forged the “look” of heavy metal typography with his logo for Blue Öyster Cult »
