2012 in Film: #69
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) | Directed by Wes Anderson
Thoughts: What a gem of a film. I kind of suffered through The Life Aquatic during the summer, as I found Anderson’s trademark quirkiness insufferable in that film. But here, it makes sense, and it’s not nearly as overbearing. Visually, it’s eye candy, and script wise, it’s clever and fun and just as novel-esque as the novel it presents itself as. Great acting all around.
