Welcome to Wes Anderson Week!


[At the end of this week Wes Anderson will release Moonrise Kingdom. That means all this week we’ll be celebrating by diving into his past films with a slew of features on the distinctive director and his films. Head here to see all our coverage during this week of Wes Anderson.]

We like doing theme weeks, but it’s hard to rally everyone here at Flixist around a single entity. It needs to be something important, like Pixar or Studio Ghibli. For what I believe is the first time, we are going to be centering our week around a person: Wes Anderson.

Love him or hate him, Wes Anderson is definitely unique, and his films are definitely interesting if nothing else. With his next film, Moonrise Kingdom, getting a limited release this Friday, we figured this was the perfect opportunity to let our voices be read.

Because ours are the only opinions that matter.

So check back throughout the week to see us list some numbers, pop some cherries, and write some theories about Wes Anderson and his work.
