The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★★★★

The heaviest dose of Wes Anderson's style in a single film to date. Which is fine, I'm a fan, but halfway through story 2 (Revisions to a Manifesto), I really feel the excess. I think story 1 (The Concrete Masterpiece) builds up so much good will, I just kinda ride that high all the way to the end. In terms of bringing creative vision to life on screen, Wes Anderson's one of the best to ever do it. Guess my problem is that he's got this whole thing cranked to an 11 when he probably shoulda brought it down to an 8 at some point.
