By Sophie Monks Kaufman and Little White Lies
Wes Anderson has quickly become one of the auteurs of modern American cinema, creating his own distinctive world with pastel color palettes, meticulous set design, nostalgic soundtracks and a kooky troupe of actors.
In this illustrated pocket guide Sophie Monks Kaufman navigates his off-kilter world, strolling across the quadrangles of Rushmore Academy, diving beneath the sea with Team Zissou and checking into the Grand Budapest Hotel to discover how an awkward indie film nerd from Texas became the most celebrated director of his generation.
Films discussed in this volume:
Bottle Rocket, Rushmore , The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, The Squid and the Whale, Drugstore Cowboy, Groundhog and more.
