    I recently realized how to describe Wes Anderson’s style, which is that he makes silent films that aren’t silent. I agree with Mike and Jay that I’d love to see him do something drastically different while keeping his style, like maybe making a science fiction/fantasy movie or something; like a modern A Trip to the Moon.

      That's how you have to be with entertainment these days, otherwise you end up angry and disappointed, because everything is a bait-and-switch these days.

    The continuity and audio syncing error in Mainstream that Jay is baffled by at 22:00 is a reference to the Godard movie Breathless, where Belmondo wears the same fedora/jacket, smokes, and speaks in the same fashion as Garfield in the scene.
    Even as a brain-dead film school reference-for-the-sake-of-reference its still incredibly stupid:
    Breathless is known for its jump cuts, where Godard edits out the "connective" shots to indicate passage of time and give the scenes a frenetic energy in the edit. What Godard didn't do in the film is show the same action from two angles. It's a failure to understand what a jump cut even is. The director knows it is a Film Thing that people talk about but seems to have never edited.
    Breathless is also known for being shot without sound in many scenes with the audio dubbed in later by the actors (mostly due to the noisy camera), leading to funky syncing. The filmmaker here is trying to approximate this but seems to be using live audio from another take, or the same take with it unsynced. Either she didn't know why the audio in Breathless didn't match up or she failed to make the sound sufficiently ADR-sounding to sell the difference as a allusion and not just a mistake.
    It's no different than "REMEMBER YODAAAA?" but aimed at connoisseurs of fine filmé. You know like Andrew Garfield.
    Just a guess, but I'd almost say it's the kind of half-baked reference you would jam in a movie if you were very concerned that film buffs weren't going to accept you as a serious director like, say, your sister or your dad.

      @Haley Allen Annihilation had a scene like that too. Found footage, some extreme autopsy suicide stuff. Honestly quite cliche. But Jay is right about Empty Man being worthwhile, because it rather deftly shifts scenarios and categories, if not outright genre blending. I was impressed, even if the ending was a tad underwhelming, and yes, it was too long.

    I just enjoy the fact that these immuno-compromised elderly men from Wisconsin just stayed home and watched low-budget garbage on their streaming platforms, so they had nothing interesting to say about any of the films... and to make the video more funny, Editor Jay just slowed Mike's voice down while he described how a movie made him catatonic. And this content is still better than 99% of Clip-Share.

      @Etalex Yeah, I'm sure the filmmaker intended something like that. It doesn't change the fact that cutting that part out doesn't change the actual plot of the movie one bit. When that's the case, it means the writer is a hack who is unable to weave their "metaphor" into the story properly.
      Or they were just using it as an excuse to get buzz and do some cool practical effects.
      Or both.

    • Etalex

      @Zenocrate The most widespread and famous medieval smut book was Italian, though. _I Modi._

    • Bacteriophagebs
      Bacteriophagebs 3 months ago +6

      I'm kind of angry at _Titane_ because if you cut the car-fucking out and just made her pregnant with a normal baby, it would be the exact same movie, just over a slightly longer timeline. The car-impregnation is just a cheap gimmick to get people to talk about it and maybe an excuse for some makeup and practical effects, nothing more. And Jay fell for it.
      The murder scenes, especially the one that goes wrong, were pretty entertaining, though. If that had been the movie, I'd have loved it, car-fucking or not.

    Btw, that same crew did a bunch of sketches called Horrible Histories, many of which are available on YT. In both cases, an interesting thing is that most of the large cast also write the scripts. A rare collaborative, collegial success story, as opposed to the usual solitary genius narrative.

    In regards to the “French Dispatch” discussion:
    There was an SNL skit about a Wes Anderson directed horror movie. Honestly, I wish he would do something like that. I love his films, but agree that he should take a small horizontal step. Keep the style, but different context. That’s all.

      @viddork I would hardly call Fantastic Mr. Fox a change of pace. Its got his signature quirky style with a dysfunctional family all the same. If anything The Grand Budapest Hotel was a tad different from his other films. I would rather see a filmmaker try new things and fail, not stick to the same genre until they go senile, like Dario Argento's latest weaker efforts. (in regards to giallo)

  • EndoGladry
    EndoGladry 4 months ago +73

    Wes Anderson is a solid filmmaker, but I think he's put himself in a box. I agree with Mike that it feels like he's writing the same types of stories over and over again at this point. I mean, how many times can you offer a fresh perspective on a difficult father-son relationship or a marriage on the rocks when you've written about them repeatedly for a couple of decades now. I'm all for artistic expression and sticking to your guns on style choices, but in my lowly peasant opinion, I think he should rely less on it. I enjoy his style, but The French Dispatch drove me a bit mad since it felt like the movie was showing off the budget with endless sequences of visual tricks and flair that didn't benefit the story THAT much. Since I'm already on a rampage, I'll add that I don't really like when he tries to apply his twee coat of paint to complex historical and political events either, it comes off a bit smug and detached to me. I don't know... I love his complicated characters and how they relate, that's where he really shines to me.

    • Killer Goose
      Killer Goose 3 months ago +6

      I don't want to knock anyone's taste, but it's pretty much objectively incorrect that Wes Anderson's movies don't have substance, emotional resonance or a deeper meaning in their style, and it shouldn't be that hard to miss it that so many people think his films are all soulless exercises in ironic hipsterdom. Just because the way he explores the humanity of his characters and settings is different doesn't mean he doesn't at all. I _do_ think he's a great filmmaker, maybe not one of the best of all time, but certainly one of the most relentlessly creative, unique and outside-the-box genuine auteurs working today, and like many one of a kind filmmakers his movies don't always land with audiences and critics on first impact. As for French Dispatch, I'm conflicted on how it ranks in his filmography but I think it was a lot better than many people seem to be saying, and more substantive too.

    • EndoGladry

    • EndoGladry
      EndoGladry 3 months ago +2

      @NeblogaiLT If you haven't seen this yet and have any interest in investigating further, I highly recommend watching his first real movie, Bottle Rocket. It is SO different in presentation than all of his other work, and it proved to me that Anderson doesn't need to have all the stylistics to succeed in making a solid movie. The plot is simple and the characters are the focus (as is the case with his better movies, in my opinion). Based on his track record, he will likely never be a legendary filmmaker since his artistic vision is, uh, somewhat limited. I hope I'm wrong, but I also think he's too successful to critically examine his own work at this point. I hope he proves me wrong though, we'll see...

    • NeblogaiLT

      @Marko Cipek I mean if you actually watch the new series, he's set up as mostly pretty pathetic at the start and a decent chunk of the show is actually trying to build up a reason to respect him as a character. It remains to be seen how successful that will be, but they definitely didn't take it as a given that he's a cool badass like most folks who've ignored the show completely seem to assume they did.

    • Marko Cipek
      Marko Cipek 4 months ago +3

      @Mon Mothma My mistake. But the point is, he was such a minor character his name was mentioned in just one scene, seconds before he died in a slapstick manner. Far cry from the highly respected and important super-badass we are supposed to accept him as today.

      @Jo - I generally prefer movies that try harder. It's like how some people eat up epic flashy CGI while others find it boring. For people who prefer things stylistically flat and realistic they can watch one of the 95% of other videos. Since I get enough realism in everyday life, I might not go to see this but I am grateful for the choice and seeing that this exists.

    Mike perfectly portrays the feeling of how in 2022 life is returning back to normal and after all this time we never stopped to realize that normal wasn’t that great to begin with so even something as simple as talking about movies is meaningless because the world has already sapped our emotions dry now we just want something real something to show for all we have felt but no one cares no one is listening so we go on doing what we have always done yet now with a cold cynical indifference

    Funny story from Cannes last year: So Spike Lee was president of the jury. And at the beginning of the big awards ceremony, when asked to announce the "first prize" of the evening, he misunderstood the instruction and just spouted out "Titane" to everyone's astonishment.

    I love that you boys found Ghosts! While the BBC version is top quality throughout and better than the US version, I will say the US version gets its shit together and becomes pretty good in its own right!
    Like most US adaptions it leans on happy vibes and loses some of the spooky motifs that the BBC maintains, but it's still a fun ride with entertaining characters (though some take far too long to get fleshed out - the US "closeted officer" opens with flat sitcomesque gay jokes, but slowly becomes a real character instead of a mildly offensive and boring stereotype)!

    I can't believe Mike loves Ghosts! 🤣 I love the show too. Makes a pleasant change from all the misery-comedy we've had lately like Fleabag and After Life. The team that made the show (British original) Also made the kids show Horrible Histories and it uses a lot of the same cast. Had no idea the Americans remade it.

    Titane was a movie I was both extremely looking forward to and also one of the most satisfying cinema experiences I had. Great film.
    On the French Dispatch, I will say that although I agree with Jay that it's not a GREAT Wes Anderson film, it was the first film I saw in the cinemas after a really long time, and it just made me really happy. Wes Anderson films feel more like the far in between released episodes of the "Wes Anderson series" more than standalone movies, and this was just a really wholesome film for me that reminded me why I liked movies and stories. It is literally a story about loving stories, and I got really excited by that. Anyways, cheers to 2022!!
