Wes Anderson. Color, style and symmetry.

My favorite film director and screenwriter – Wesley Wales „Wes“ Anderson. Love all his films and all music he uses in his works! He has created visual masterpieces with each of his films by using different aspect ratios, symmetry and bright color palettes.

Anderson has been noted for his extensive use of flat space camera moves, obsessively symmetrical compositions, snap-zooms, slow-motion walking shots, a deliberately limited color palette, and hand-made art direction often utilizing miniatures. These stylistic choices give his movies a highly distinctive quality that has provoked much discussion, critical study, supercuts and mash-ups, and even parody. Many writers, critics, and even Anderson himself have commented that this gives his movies the feel of being „self-contained worlds“ in Anderson’s words, or a „scale model household“ according Michael Chabon, with „a baroque Pop bent that is not realist, surrealist, or magic realist“ but rather might be described as „fabul[ist].

Look, how many people were inspired by his amazing films!
