A typical Anderson film with his trademark style and the usual cast of characters. I love Anderson, but this one just didn't seem to have what his other great films (Rushmore, Life Aquatic, Moonrise, Budapest) did. Those films made you care about the characters. Quite honestly everyone in this film is detestable except for the villagers. They're the heart of the film. If you like Anderson, you're going to at least like this film, you might even love it. All of his tropes are here. If you don't like Anderson, may I try and convert you by telling you to see Moonrise Kingdom or Rushmore first. Anderson is one of the greatest working directors today.
