Wes Anderson Movies....Can You Be Cool and Still Dislike Them?
I've come to a funny fork in the road, culture-wise. I decided after watching Moonrise Kingdom that I'm having trouble justifying my continued appreciation of Wes Anderson movies. →
I enjoy them, but always feel enormously let down by the dollhouse/OCD/everything-at-a remove feel to them. As if Whimsy and Set Design were all you need to tell stories with.
I want to hear from people who don't follow the fandom about why they feel put off by Wes Anderson. I say this still as a fan, and I always will go see his movies. But lately I feel like so much is missing from them that it's like the cinematic equivalent of moving through an IKEA display.
