Anderson’s finest yet?
In the past, Anderson has whirled us from melancholy dreamscapes set deep below the Pacific to tales of inter-generation betrayals in the name of love, from doomed romances in Paris hotels to deliriously bizarre animal revolutions in the English countryside. But for all the retro-stylings his films so proudly wear, Moonrise Kingdom is Anderson’s first period piece – a tender love story set in the sepia-soaked sixties of Anderson’s youth that have worked their influence into every one of his movies. It is fitting that this film is his most childlike – not in any way any simpler than his other films (as anyone with an accurate memory of childhood will remember all it’s complexities; the way each trivial thing became a nest of thorns), but an accurate and deeply heartfelt depiction of childhood. It is not aiming to be as crushingly dramatic as Life Aquatic or as deeply tragic as Hotel Chevalier, because that wouldn’t be appropriate for the story it’s trying to tell. Instead, while still bearing Anderson’s still surprising streak of black humour (some acts of violence really catch you off-guard; then again, children are violent so hats off Wes), it is largely concerned with the dramas and tragedies of youth. Yes, it is less ambitious than say The Life Aquatic but it also has none of the flaws that that film does (and believe me, I am a massive Steve Zissou fan). Instead, it is perfectly executed, wonderfully acted poignant beauty, with fantastic performances across the board (especially from newcomers Gilman and Hayward). This, while not his most ambitious, is certainly Anderson’s most perfect work so far. You owe it to yourself to see this movie.
Like watching Lord of the Flies while on acid…
and I absolutely loved every minute. There’s nothing better than when you see actors commit fully to absurdity, and there wasn’t a misstep in the entire film, stellar cast and a great movie watching experience. My favorite, of Wes Anderson’s films, and what a move picking the two lead child actors – their performances were brave and spot-on. I want to find this island, I want to liquidate everything I own and move there, I just wonder if a place like this still exists in the World? I bet it does. Quirky and humorous, this film doesn’t disappoint (or at least I’ve only heard of 1 person so far not giving it a thumbs up), anyone who doesn’t get this film I suspect had a very regimented childhood and didn’t take any risks. Great soundtrack, two people near me in the theatre jumped up into the aisle to start dancing (I suspect they may have been there for a second viewing!), the entire audience enjoyed it. Really, Anderson’s best film yet in my book, highly recommended.
