Wes Anderson Centered
Words like “quirky” and “idiosyncratic” are often bandied about when discussing Wes Anderson’s work. Whatever words you want to use to describe his films, it’s obvious that that the director has a style that is wholly his own. Korean filmmaker Kogonada explores one distinctive hallmark of Anderson’s style in “Centered,” a supercut of symmetrical shots from his filmography. Whether you’re an Anderson fan or not, the short shows that the director is even more meticulous that you may have assumed. For fans, the video is a good way to whet your whistle for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson’s latest effort, on view now in a city near you.
Kogonada specializes in videos about directors’ particular signatures. If you like what you see above, you can watch his pieces on Kubrick, Malick, and Tarantino.
