Regardless of what you think about Wes Anderson he is a unique force in contemporary cinema. An auteur in the classic sense with his visual, aural, tonal stamp on every frame of his films. For fans (like me) a new Wes Anderson film is an event and interviews with him are clamoured over.
I was curious about his Fantastic Mr Fox adaptation. How was he going to retain the ‘Dahlness’ and allow it to remain unmistakably a Wes Anderson film? I still don’t know how he did it, but the more I think on the film the higher it climbs up my films of his, of 2009, and of the decade. A unique movie.
