    The first hour or so looks as though it is firmly headed towards “masterpiece” territory, and then it becomes the film that it was intended to be, and that is the exact moment where I start to tune out. Throughout the exhausting, albeit intentionally so, second half I was wondering why that was the case, why was I not into the crazy crime thriller sequence as I should’ve been. It finally hit me.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Wes Anderson hasn’t made a bad film, and while my disconnect towards The French Dispatch is strong, a simple rewatch down the road ought to suffice. Anderson’s films find you when you’re in just enough of a crummy mood to enjoy the quirkiness of his worlds, as well as the underlying sadness present in all of his characters. Steve Zissou…
