If you love quirky and offbeat, you surely must be a fan of Wes Anderson. If there was ever a man who has a different view of the world to most filmmakers, it is he. His movies are weirdly wonderful – it’s sometimes as if Willy Wonka is in charge of the whole world. And surprisingly, although there is a signature bizarreness to all Wes Anderson movies, they are very different in subject matter. For fans, here’s a roundup and for newbies, these are the ones to watch.
1. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Anderson’s trademark whimsical and quirky style is on full show in this delightful coming of age comedy. Set in 1965 in New England, a pair of young sweethearts run away together, setting off a town search party full of weird and wonderful characters. A star-studded cast including many of Anderson’s favorites like Bill Murray and Ed Norton, Moonrise Kingdom is a film you will want to watch again and again.
