All the Bowie was a really awesome surprise. I laughed a lot. Approvingly.

hey so folks, what are (in your opinion) the best articles about/interviews with wes anderson out there? i suppose even stuff that hates on anderson is ok. anything that has something interesting to say about his work.

i liked the nyer profile from a couple of months back, when he seemed bugged that slumdog millionaire had been successful, and that it was someone else's indian movie, rather than his indian movie, that was a success.

tbf his indian movie was better

also, i agree that darjeeling ltd >>> slumdog

have never seen slumdog, but the point was that w.a. seemingly saw all 'indian movies' as interchangeable, and that the public's hunger for exotica should have been met by his rather than another; their individual merits didn't seem to be a consideration.

if that's true it's embarrassing. are you sure he wasn't being tongue-in-cheek, like haha my indian movie didn't do as well as this other indian movie.

to be fair both films seem equally, if differently, exoticizing. if anything darjeeling ltd was less offensive than slumdog.

i read that and... arnaud desplechin just strikes me as incredibly boring. i don't really "get" his films either.

Just want to add that this ficticious Margot Tenenbaum mixtape is spot on:

i've been googling and coming up empty: is there a film that uses steve marriott's 'give her my regards'?

it's not a well-known song, so why do i know it ==>> it must have been in a movie.

love that they meet at le select, which is classic retro-literary-tourist territory. wanderson shd make a film actually set in the first half of the 20th century imo.

Nicholas Gurewitch did a pretty rad job of this with his imaginary "Cloud Photographers" soundtrack.

Ha ok I see it was posted already, I guess a ctrl≠f of 'could' was not sufficient research.

This is decidedly not Wes Anderson's next movie--but maybe it should be the one after that?

A soundtrack to an imaginary film, 'The Great Wide Yonder':

three months pass...

I've been picturing 'The Great Wide Yonder' as Anderson's first cel-animated feature, done by the crew that did 'L'Illusioniste'/'Triplets of Bellville,' or that did 'The Red Turtle,' or that did 'I Lost My Body,' taking inspiration from 'Fantastic Planet'... Now I actually want this to happen...

Damn, I forgot he already used powerman on darjeeling limited. Would have made a great fit on a race scene.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 22 May 2020 14:06 (two months ago) link

Oh well Can and Monkees are good candidates for a wes anderson directed race.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 22 May 2020 14:07 (two months ago) link

There’s probably some very apt Italian songs that could fit but I’m just waking up and I can’t think of any atm.
