You Know I Usually Hate Wes Anderson Movies…

…and this trailer is so Wes Andersony (Slate nicely breaks down how) that at first it struck me like he was descending into self-parody. But by the end I felt like I had just watched a charming two minute movie. Watching the actual full length film might spoil the charm. I’ll have to think over whether it’s worth the risk.

But mostly I post this just as an excuse to repost an actual Wes Anderson parody (The Amazing Spider-Man), which I love:

    thats a great parody – you not think it would make a better spiderman?

    wes is an auteur – there are very few directors with that vision and boldness. its great to see someone making films with such a greta unique vision. one wes anderson film will be better than 99% of all the other films released that year. what a legend.
