I’ve been disappointed with Wes Anderson’s last three films and I admit that his style may be getting a bit tired. But his new film looks like a return to form, ala Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, and I’m officially excited.
Of course it is – It was shot where I live !
Looks characteristically cute. Wes Anderson always makes me think of Truffaut…
The title sounds like an anime. Movie looks like a Wes Anderson movie, which means I’ll probably enjoy the hell out of it.
Yeah, the title is a bid strange. But I guess that’s par for the course with Anderson.
Looks great! I love the colors he uses.
The name of the camp – Ivanhoe – is clever, other than that it looks like W.T. is regressing.
Ivanhoe is also a school in Silverlake (the west coast capital of hipsters).
@Santino – You have typed the forbidden word. Do not do that again. As I type, you still have one minute to edit your post and erase the great damage you have done.
Do you mean “hipster”?
or do you mean “hipster”?
i think he meant ‘hipster’ ^
An underrated, pretentious hipster walked into a bar…
Duck and cover.
I’m a fan of Wes Anderson, he hasn’t missed with me yet. The beginning of the trailer had me a little skeptical but once it kicked into the Francoise Hardy song i was really digging it from there on.
plus… come on…
i’m looking forward to this.
I love Wes Anderson…I may even have a man crush on him…I’m not sure.
@Santino – So Silverlake is the west coast h****** hub? I thought the entire city of Portland had taken that honor. I need to get up to date on this stuff.
Nah, Portland is sooo ’90s.
From what I can tell, Silverlake is really the hipster capital of the world but I know people in Williamsburg might disagree. So I prefer to just qualify Silverlake as the hipster hub west of the Mississippi. One clear indication of Silverlake’s dominance in hipsterdom: the number of mumblecore films that are shot there (by people like the Duplass Bros, who live there).
I don’t know, dude. Portland has an entire show – Portlandia – that satirizes h****** culture. Plus they have dozens of indie-type bands (like Spoon, Wild Flag, The Decemberists, The Shins) that are either from or have moved to Portland. I’ll concede to your expertise, because I live east of the Mississippi, but I gotta say that I have my doubts.
Wow, another empty cloying Wes Anderson movie. Yawn.
Well, I’ve been to both Portland and Silverlake although I will admit it’s been a couple years since I’ve been up to Portland. The problem is that Portland also has a lot of skaters (see Paranoid Park) whereas Silverlake is synonymous with hipster and only hipster (the have been able to keep out out virtually all fast food and chain restaurants). And it’s impossible to drive down any street in Silverlake/Echo Park and NOT see someone walking down the street in tight jeans and plastic, multicolored $5 sunglasses.
“Wow, another empty cloying Wes Anderson movie. Yawn.”
Couldn’t agree more. Return to form? It looks like the same crap to me…
Portland’s full of hipPIES. Not the same.
Looks great. Typical Wes Anderson, which is refreshing. I need a good quality film fix, especially with all this crap coming out.
i currently live in portland.
no one can do preciousness and ironic disassociation
and self-indulgent bike riding like us.
Wes Anderson is a mad genius who dreamed he was Wes Anderson.
He’s having that same dream again, I hope.
His detractors enjoy the deep, dull sleep of the unimaginative.
No dreams, just the same unearned resentment poorly expressed during waking hours.
Besides, the detractors are just angry because we Anderson fans know the secret of the Bengal Lancer color scheme, but we won’t tell them.
Throw in the fact that some of us have girlfriends who look like Margot, and, well, there you have it.
“Throw in the fact that some of us have girlfriends who look like Margot, and, well, there you have it.”
I think it’s the good Doctor who is dreaming.
Whatever you want to say about Wes, this film looks a little desperate. Self-conscious of his recent failures, he’s returning to earlier glories. But we know you can never go back, right?
I’ll cede you (and Portland) the preciousness and self-iindulgent bike riding. But you don’t know ironic disassociation if you haven’t lived among liberals in the capital of the Confederacy.
