Wes Anderson’s new film, following the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, we now know that The French Dispatch may be the filmmaker’s best work because of the way his films come to life. You can tell you’re viewing one of his films by the unusual features. watch the new clip below.
The French Dispatch is set in a fictional French city called Ennui-Sur-Blasé, which is clearly inspired by Paris, and takes place in the offices of a royal weekly magazine on the topics of world politics, the arts, fashion, fine cuisine, and various stories of established interest in far-flung neighborhoods, loosely based on The New Yorker, a magazine Anderson had been reading since her teens.
Following the death of the editor-in-chief, Arthur Howitzer Jr. (Bill Murray), the editorial staff is tasked with producing a last commemorative issue that highlights the three finest articles that occurred throughout the magazine’s ten-year run.
Anderson’s most recent installment, starring Benicio Del Toro, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Owen Wilson, Christoph Waltz, and Willem Dafoe, and told as an anthology, turns out to be a beautiful ode to the “golden times” of journalism and one of the most revered cultural products of the United States, the magazine the New Yorker, which the director read with appreciation.
Wes Anderson’s noble and colorful movie, the eleventh in his filmography, proves to be one that thoroughly confirms the filmmaker’s visual and narrative feature, which includes making his actors appear like cartoons and occasionally replacing action with painting. It was supposed to debut long before Cannes, but the epidemic caused it to be postponed.
The French Dispatch hit theaters in the United States and the United Kingdom on October 22.
