    A fantastic book for fans of Wes Anderson’s and of cinematography alike Each chapter is based around each film chronologically Although it was tempting to skip straight to my favourites and devour the pictures a lot of the production ones are new to me I started at the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed each part I especially loved the added extras about influences meaning and the distinctive Wes Anderson “look”A truly great piece of work that really does justice to this much loved filmmaker

    A glorious coffee table book with both style and substance I devoured this in one night So wonderfully written and informative I found Wes Anderson very late and was fascinated by the descriptions of his earlier works The perfect both for fans both new and old

    This is a richly illustrated study of Wes Anderson’s films in a format and style matching the author’s hugely popular book on Tarantino and his very recent book on Ridley Scott The books are elegant objects with big glossy pictures organised around a study of the works film by film The format is hugely appealing and Anderson fans in particular will love itThe secret of its success is not just the design but the way the writing complements the design the book aims to be a pleasure to read as it is to look at Nathan is a film critic whose aim is to communicate his own enthusiasm for directors with a distinctive voice and aesthetic The focus is very much on the films not the critic he explains the background to each film the casting and production details runs over the plot picks out themes and stylistic elements and their popular reception But this is done in a fun conversational tone like a magazine article not in a heavy academic or encyclopedic style He does provide a good amount of info he restricts the technical aspects to text boxes signature camera techniues; key filmic influences and such like This works well keeping the text lightNathan explores each of Anderson’s works in turn up to and including The French Dispatch which at the time of writing still exists only in trailer form The characterisation of each film is very deft Moonrise Kingdom for example is a mix between Bonnie and Clyde with Swallows and s Bottle Rocket’s pairing with Schultz’s Peanuts is aptly described as ‘understated poignancy’ There are lots of these little insights they are neat little packets of info and they are very apt when describing Anderson’s films which he notes are like stamp albums with their own collection of influences neatly laid out Only once or twice did I think the info might be adjusted the idea that Bertolucci’s The Conformist is a general influence on Anderson is mentioned but not really explained the controlled use of colour and framing to support the storytellingGreat films great book great text highly recommended
